    Contoured Petrified Wood
    Araucarioxylon arizonicum
    Chinle Formation
    Arizona, USA

    Vibrant colors are often the hallmark of the better specimens of colorful Petrified Wood, especially the "rainbow" variety from Arizona. This intensely bold contoured slab features a fiery mix of reds, oranges and yellows which really "pop" off its gradually sloping surface. This is a beautifully decorative example that should be the focal point of most any environment in which it is featured. The vividly reflective top measures 10.5 inches (26.67 cm) at its maximum dimension, and the log is well over 5 inches (12.7 cm) tall. The primarily brownish grainy bark rind wraps all the way around the very thick rounded contour slab. This piece is exceptional for the intense coloration over its face, and the hefty stump is a lot of Petrified Wood.
    Overall Measurements: 10.63 x 9.76 x 5.31 inches (27.00 x 24.80 x 13.50 cm)
    Offered at no reserve.
