SiS: Gorgeous BLUE 13 " Arizona Petrified Wood Round - The Other BLUE FOREST




Item Pricing & History

Information:
Original Description:
This is a really captivating and unusually colored slab from the famous Blue Forest area of the Arizona petrified forest!  This is a full cross section, virtually flawless slab cut from a very highly agatized log.   It's a lovely blue/gray shade with gorgeous accents of black and red framing the colorful agate.  The log is very nicely agatized and took a magnificent polish as only the best grad...es of petrified wood can. The exterior has a crisp, white rind with nice wood texture that frames the entire cross section.  This is a different location and different preservation than the more typically seen rainbow wood.  It's quite striking, very nicely preserved and truly unique!  The burst of color hidden inside this gem fossil and revealed in our mirror polishing is simply amazing!  This looks to be an Araucaria (an ancient conifer).  The fascinating color combines with the ancient wood grain growth structure to make a stunning display piece!   This is the heel cut from a very short log section.    I don't often get top grade examples of petrified wood from Arizona and what I do see is usually table top size and not very easy for a collector to display.  This particular log is an exception to both rules.  I didn't find it, but I sure wish I had!  It's one of the better preserved  smaller sized petrified wood logs I've seen from that state and deserves a place in your collection as well.  I'm pretty sure most of the petrified logs found in this particular area are Araucaria, and the structure in this one is consistent with those.  The cell structure of most of these super old conifer like trees are very difficult to separate just in cross section no matter how well defined they are and this one is no exception.If you're new to our shop the one thing you should expect is to see an unexpectedly glossy finish on each stone we prepare.  This complete round is a wonderful example of the best lapidary work you'll find. It's been cut with a diamond saw and flat lapped on equipment I built myself to produce a mirror perfect polish unmatched by any of our many would-be imitators. The detail captured and revealed through the highly polished surface is just immaculate. It's easily some of the best fossil wood to be found anywhere! The rings are gorgeous, the agate is highly polished and the detail is easier to see in person than the photo suggests. It's a truly special find and we won't likely have a lot more so get a piece for your collection while it's available! This is a gorgeous slab from the center of the log and measures about 13" x 10 1/4" across the widest point across the polished face.  It is cut approx 1/2" thick.  Weight is 5 lbs.A nice, unique natural wonder collectible exclusively from Sticks-in-Stones Lapidary! Sticks-in-Stones Lapidary is happily providing UPS & USPS shipping to greatly reduce shipping charges on large rock orders. We will combine all of your purchased from our shop into one package to bring you the greatest possible value in fine lapidary & stone collectibles!
