DescriptionBig Texas Slab
Eocene, Yegua Formation
Houston County, Texas, USA
This massive, loosely triangular shaped beauty is Petrified Wood from Texas. This amazing remnant of a Dicot broad leaf tree features multiple rich jet black "cores" among "sprayed" tan, and even blue, sections in this highly polished specimen. There is a hollow, fist-sized hole in the interior of the piece adding to its overall charm and appeal. The log from which this exotic slab was cut came from a private ranch near Crockett, Texas. A deep creek runs through the ranch and, from time to time, will expose Petrified Wood. Logs which can be cut into slabs of this size and quality are very rare. This variety is no longer represented in the fauna of Texas, as the climate back then was more tropical and warmer. This specimen confirms "things really are bigger in Texas."
Overall Measurements: 20.0 x 14.5 x 1.0 inches (50.8 x 36.8 x 2.5 cm)
