Conifer, Upper Triassic, Molteno Formation
Charama Plateau WNW of Gokwe
6.5 x 5 x 0.35 inches (16.51 x 12.70 x 0.9 cm)
The country of Zimbabwe in southern Africa may not usually be thought of as a nice locality for Petrified Wood, but it does produce some interesting material including this slab measuring 6.5 inches (16.51 cm) at its maximum diameter. The polished slice is primarily a combination of light and dark browns but also has a tinge of green. In addition, this slab features a small cavity near the creamy white crystallized core. The polish is lustrous, and the farthest edges have a slight taper on this 200 million year old fossil piece.
