Petrified Wood Slab I

90.00

From a time before written records comes this large Petrified Wood Slab in soft amber, rust and gray tones. It is millions of years old! You can see the growth rings very clearly as well as knots. This fine specimen has beautiful live edges all the way around it. The front and back look similar. In the late Tertiary period blankets of rainforest surrounding volcanoes were plentiful throughout Indonesia. Volcanic eruption buried everything in ash and lava, eliminating any microbes that would rot the wood which was then replaced with silica rich minerals such as jasper, opal, quartz and chalcedony. The colors in the wood come from traces of iron and manganese. Responsibly sourced. Weights 3 1/2 lbs.Dinner Plate size. Measures: 11 3/4” tall x 7 1/4” wide x almost 1” thick.
