DescriptionPetrified Wood Slab
While minerals are certainly more prized on a general basis for color than fossils, Petrified Wood is often coveted for various hues, and blue - as exhibited prominently in this slab from Madagascar - is a sought after color to be sure. The nicely mottled surface of this piece features a significant amount of slate blue intermixed with creams and browns. The real bonus of this specimen is that it is polished on both sides - not at all typical for slabs of Petrified Wood. This added effort has resulted in a decorative example with the ability to display from both sides. At almost 11 inches (28 cm), this piece is substantial as well as full of impact. Given that less than one percent of Petrified Wood from Madagascar is a blue, this is a rarity.
