    Araucarioxylon
    Triassic
    Chinle Formation, Painted Desert Member
    Upper End Mackelprang Wash, Navajo County, Arizona, USA
    4.02 x 3.46 x 0.33 inches (10.20 x 8.80 x 0.83 cm)


    This piece of Petrified Wood is not large, but it sure is big on color and impact. An example of rare green Chromium Petrified Wood, this represents one of the least common varieties ever discovered. This slab from the famed Chinle Formation in Arizona is an indescribable hue, with a rugged exterior rind of bark.

    [Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]
