    Description

    Petrified Log Section
    Schinoxylon sp.
    Eocene
    Blue Forest
    Eden Valley, Sweetwater County, Wyoming, USA


    These beautiful blue pieces of Petrified Wood from the aptly named Blue Forest are a singular set with one end cut and 15 other small slabs. Each example has a circular pattern with a round, dark brown core which is ringed with a soft blue banding that is, in turn, bordered by a thicker band of the same brown hue. The "Sweet 16" are exceptional coasters of Petrified Wood from the noteworthy locality, and being a cut and polished set gives this log a lot of cachet. The end piece is rather thick compared to the thinner slices and is encased with a rough tan exterior coating. The unpolished end of the anchor piece is rough but has the same pattern and colored material which, obviously, runs through the entire log. This group allows for a very unique display as the pieces can be manipulated in numerous ways to showcase them.
    Overall Measurements: 3.94 x 3.74 x 2.17 inches (10.00 x 9.50 x 5.50 cm)
    Offered at no reserve.


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