    Fossils

    Petrified Conifer Slab
    Araucarioxylon
    Triassic
    Chinle Formation
    Arizona, USA

    This rustic slab of Arizona Petrified Wood is enormous, and features bands of muted colors swirling over the polished surface. Designed to be a large wall installation, or even used as a tabletop, the piece looks exactly as fossilized wood should, having captured original aspects of the once organic matter into stone for all time. The decorative nature of such a specimen cannot be overstated, but the example stands as an outstanding museum-quality fossil, too. This represents the top quality material of this type available anywhere, and it is easy to see why. This massive stunner will certainly be a statement piece in any décor.
