Seller: rockshop (10,237) 100%, Location: Beaverton, Oregon, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 391911181323 This is an absolutely gorgeous, gem grade specimen of fossil wood from a giant sequoia tree that was dug recently in Central Oregon near the town of Ashwood. It's some of the highest quality, hardest petrified wood you'll find anywhere. Some of it is so intricately preserved it's actually chatoyant ! This one is one of our larger specimens and it shows a ton of great wood grain. The trunk of this tree was about 5 feet in diameter, so the several dozen growth rings you see clearly in the face of this specimen are just a small fraction of the life span of this massive tree! This wood is not only beautifully colored and finely preserved, it's incredibly well agatized and took a magnificent polish (front side is polished, back and sides are rough and natural). It's the quality of our finishes on world class specimens like this one that sets Sticks in Stones Lapidary apart from the rest! This is one of those rare accidental photos that begins to show what we mean by mirror finish!! This is a really beautiful specimen of the petrified wood found near Ashwood Oregon. The ranch this massive tree was excavated on is private and does not normally allow any sort of rockhounding, but a single massive log was dug recently and produced a nice selection of blocky specimen grade pieces in the process. It's a pretty nice block shaped piece of petrified wood, with absolutely gorgeous gem quality agate in many colors preserving this ancient fossil in exceptional detail. The exterior is rough and natural as it came from the ground, but the mirror polished face reveals countless growth rings and structure from an ancient sequoia giant! You can still see the wood grain in perfect detail. It looks just like a piece of firewood today would look. The inside however is a richly colored array of gem quality agate that preserved the wood grain beautifully in every detail! The growth rings in this attractive fossil specimen are very well defined and flow artfully. These are particularly fine in this piece indicating that it was a very slow growing tree, as you'd expect for it's size. It's really a lovely specimen! This nicely shaped display piece was cut at a steep sloping angle and then polished to show off all the gemmy detail inside. The base is cut flat so that you can present it nicely without a stand and show it off on a bookshelf or table. It took a beautiful polish, it really does look like a mirror! As beautiful as the face is with all those gorgeous flowing colors, the exterior is almost as interesting with an intricate, detailed surface that's just fascinating to study. It's another one of those beautiful fossil treasures that some happy Sticks-in-Stones customer is going to flip over! This beautiful, blocky showpiece stands about 13 3/4" tall and measures about 12" x 3 1/4" wide across the polished face. Weight is 3.22 lbs. Another Sticks-in-Stones Lapidary quality stone collectible! Condition: New
