Seller: rockshop (10,232) 100%, Location: Beaverton, Oregon, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 391908177267 This round represent the highest quality gem agate found in any petrified wood I have ever seen from Argentina. This highly patterned, dense agate which is found in the center region of these logs is sometimes referred to as picture wood. It takes a magnificent polish that really lets us show off our lapidary skills! The color and wood grain are absolutely gorgeous and completely unprecedented in any other log I've seen from this location. It's complete and flawless - it even has true fossil bark around the perimeter of the round! Combine our finish work on such a fine piece with a truly perfect shape and you've got a true collector piece that isn't likely to be equalled from this site. This wood is increasingly hard to come by with only the pieces already in collections available now. This one has a drusy crystal lined cavity that appears to be formed in an insect boring tunnel! The pastel orange framing the richly colored agate in an affordable size makes this a collector must have! This is one of the most beautiful, complete petrified wood rounds from one of the most exotic new locations I've seen in quite a while. This very fine grade of petrified wood came from the southern tip of South America in Argentina! It is what remains of an ancient forest that thrived many millions of years ago. This round comes from one of the newest logs we've obtained from that part of the world. We were able to get some of the best logs we've ever seen recently and this round is one of the first we've finished from that acquisition. It's a conifer of some sort, but I can't venture a guess as to which one. If you follow our auctions, you know what a horrible time I have getting photos with lots of light colors to turn out - this round is in that category. It is much more striking in real life than my camera can capture. There are wonderful peach and subtle purple tones in the outer round, accented with mint green. The best agate is in the interior where every growth ring shows up in a highly translucent agate that polishes up unbelievably well. I'm very excited by these new logs. Quality like this is hard to find anywhere and this important deposit is capable of producing some wonderful rounds! This top quality round is not only 100% there, rind and all, but it has some of the most stunning growth ring detail you'll ever see in petrified wood. If the timeless mystery of this piece isn't enough for you, then I'm certain the simple, natural, gemmy beauty of it will be. The colors are warm and rich and the entire piece is completely preserved in a very high grade of agate. The high agate content allows this stone to be polished to a liquid perfect, lustrous finish that only the best grades of fossil wood can achieve. This round is about average for most of the Argentina specimens I've seen. It's a great collector size to fit nicely into most display cabinets. This round is is a perfect slice taken from the center of a very solid log. It's really a nice piece, but what else would you expect from a business named "Sticks-in-Stones"?! Polished to the highest standards, we guarantee you'll be pleased to show off this fine specimen in your own collection. This piece measures 4 7/8" across the mirror polished face and is sliced about 0.4" thick. Weight is 0.54 lbs. Sticks-in-Stones Lapidary is happily providing UPS & USPS shipping to greatly reduce shipping charges on large rock orders. We will combine all of your purchases from our shop to bring you the greatest possible value in fine Lapidary & stone collectibles! Condition: New
