Description
Fossils and RelatedMuseum-Quality Polished Petrified Wood Section

Polished Petrified Wood Section from Araucarioxylon Tree.
This very large, 18" x 17" x 3/4"-thick, agatized and polished section of petrified wood from the Araucarioxylon tree has a wonderful mix of colors that resulted from different minerals from the volcanic soil permeating the wood over millions of years. The unusual orange color was produced by replacement by iron oxide. This exceptionally large section is one of the most colorful imaginable, being predominantly burnt orange with brown hues and shades of violet and blue. Pictures definitely do not do justice to this museum-quality specimen. Araucarioxylon arizonicum is an extinct 225 million-year-old conifer tree that is the state fossil of Arizona.
