Sis: Translucent Blue Hubbard Basin Petrified Wood Round

Here's a fantastic treat for those of you who have been hankering for a Hubbard Basin round but couldn't afford the price tag on a largerslab but wanted a truly collector grade display piece. This wonderful, deep inky and skyblue specimen is one of the most beautifulrichly coloredyet translucent blue specimens I've ever had and it's in a nice, easy to display size. It's also a full round with very visible wood grain and it shows off some gorgeous reds, golds, whites and blacks to contrast beautifully and 100% naturally with that stunning blue!This piece is so agatized thatlight easily passes through from the back of the slab. It is complete and flawless save for a single stabilized fracture line (no risk of breaking). A great chance at a Hubbard Basin show piece!

Here's an absolutely gorgeous, hard to come by petrified wood round from one of the most prized petrified wood deposits ever discovered! If you aren't familiar with the Hubbard Basin petrified wood from Nevada, you should be! It's a very colorful variety, though not plentiful so the pieces aren't often found (or seen). This piece has all of the best color that these coveted specimens are famous for but the dominant shade in this one is blue - every shade of blue! The characteristic blue, white, blackand gold appear to have been painted into the stone with the single intention of drawing a gasp from the fossil wood collector on sight!

Besides being beautifully colored, it's also perfectly preserved. The flowing wood grain from this complete round starts at the heart and fans out through every part of this highly colorful wood. Hubbard Basin petrified wood is highly prized among fossil and gemstone collectors because of it's uniquely beautiful blue color and gold, red, etc. inclusions. It's also some of the best agatized wood to be found and is sometimes even translucent. This piece appears to be from a conifer and the cell structure is visible in several areas. Many of the trees found in this coveted deposit were spruce.

This is a smaller log cross section of petrified wood.This round is complete, and nicely sized although most of these specimens were from softer wood species and like their cousins in Cherry Creek (Nevada's other famous deposit) they tended to get "squashed" in the ground forming these oblong rounds when cut. The jagged edge is like coral - extremely hard and indicative of the powerful forces that created this timeless treasure!

If you haven't seen our petrified wood specimens before then you've been missing one of the best treasures found on ! We work hard to find the best specimens from the most prized locations and then work with our magic to create a world class specimen for your collection. The piece is quite solid and meant to be handled. A quick squirt of windex will remove fingerprints from the glassy polished surface.

This stone has been professionally polished on a special lap that produces a flat face and a mirror perfect shine. We obtained this round at a local show a couple of years ago and reworked the commercial finish to produce a world class specimen featuring the Sticks-in-Stones polish worthy of a place in your own collection. The polish really is liquid perfect - a difference in the quality products Sticks-in-Stones has built its reputation on!

It measures about 8 3/4"wide on the polished face. It's cut about 0.40" thick. Weight is 1.16 lbs. Stands sold separately.
