Sis: Petrified Wood Round From China - Amazing Red Slab:
This is one of the most rich, dark red specimens I've seen from this petrified forest. It was found in China and is one of the few complete rounds in this size we've seen. The slab was imported with a terrible polish, but we've ground it flat and finished it properly to produce a world class petrified wood collectible specimen! The finish has to be seen to be believed - the photo doesn't do it justice because the dark colors are actually showing strong reflections. It's a really nice piece with great structure.
It's clearly a conifer but which variety is tough to pin down (though a paleobotanist might have a reasonable go at it just from that photo!) It's quite solid and very well preserved.
I wasn't sure this one was going to polish but it really finished up nicely. There is plenty of high grade agate in this specimen to show off the fine wood grain details right down to the tiny cells. The growth rings are fine and tightly packed together. Fine rounds from China are rarely seen and very few collectors have had the chance at such rarities until now! This gorgeous red specimen won't likely have any cousins and it was short so there aren't a lot from this log either. This could be your only chance to add one of these unique treasures to your own collection!
This specimen has been carefully polished to show off all the gemmy detail inside. It took a beautiful polish, testament both to the quality of the specimen and the exceptional lapidary work we apply to every piece we produce! It's another one of those beautiful fossil treasures that some happy Sticks-in-Stones customer is going to flip over!
This round is cut from thecenter of the log. It measuresabout 7" x 7" in diameter and is cut 0.36" thick.
A nice, unique naturally wonderful stone collectible exclusively from Sticks-in-Stones Lapidary- 's Original Rockshop!
