Seller: rockshop (10,235) 100%, Location: Beaverton, Oregon, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 382256699816 It's hard not to love the beautiful natural color in this amazing fossil wood and this piece is as colorful as they get! The color in this magnificent fossil specimen simply has to be seen in person to be truly appreciated - it literally glows and it clearly shows where Arizona "rainbow" wood gets its fanciful name! The stone was pricey, but it had such dramatic colors in a nice displayable size that I couldn't pass it up! This log produced some of the finest and visually captivating Arizona Rainbow specimens you'll find with truly remarkable natural color. It's the kind of specimens that explains how this wood earned its name! The log is very nicely agatized and took a magnificent polish to bring all of that amazing color to life as only the best grades of petrified wood can. This looks to be an Araucaria (an ancient conifer). The deep red, orange, purple and yellow combine with the ancient wood grain to make a stunning display piece! We don't offer it often - but when we do you know it's a great piece!! I don't often get top grade examples of petrified wood from Arizona and what I do see is usually table top size and not very easy for a collector to display. This particular log is an exception to both rules. I didn't find it, but I sure wish I had! It's one of the better preserved petrified wood logs I've seen from that state and deserves a place in your collection as well. Most of the petrified logs found in this particular area are Araucaria, and the structure in this one is consistent with those. The cell structure of most of these super old conifer like trees are very difficult to separate just in cross section no matter how well defined they are and this one is no exception. This is a piece of petrified wood from what is arguably the most famous petrified wood deposit around - the great Arizona Petrified Forest! Don't worry, this wood was mined (as it still is today) from a private ranch near Hollbrook, AZ, not pirated away from the National Monument. Despite some of the wild claims you see in various eBay auctions, this wood is still quite available and legally for sale at reputable rockshops including the big one just outside the monument. The problem with being famous is the folk lore that follows I suppose. The reason this wood is so famous is pretty clearly demonstrated in this gorgeous specimen. Arizona wood (Rainbow Wood as it is sometimes called) is just filled with rich colors, often dominated by red and black but covering every color in the rainbow! This lovely specimen is a very attractive and unusually patterned, ultra-colorful chunk that really shows the wood grain and color off better than some of the giant display pieces can! This piece is cut as a "stand-up" for displaying. If you haven't seen our standup specimens before, they are larger, blockier pieces of petrified wood cut in such a way as to present a sloping face so the pieces can be enjoyed sitting on a table, desk, shelf or mantle and the polished face is visible whether you are standing in front of them or over the top of them. The pieces are quite solid and meant to be handled. A quick squirt of windex will remove fingerprints from the glassy polished surface. This lovely piece of fossil wood is ground, sanded and polished on a series of special laps we built to bring you the highest quality lapidary finish available on the market. The Sticks-in-Stones polish is something our customers have come to appreciate and seek out. We guarantee you'll be impressed too! This piece stands about 7 1/4" tall and measures 6 1/2" wide across the mirror polished face. Weight is 5.20 lbs. Another Sticks-in-Stones Lapidary quality stone collectible! Condition: New
