Araucaria sp. (Petrified Wood)
Formation: Petrified Forest
Size: Slice of wood is 3.1 inches across
This is a very pretty petrified wood round. It is a slice of Araucaria wood from the Triassic of Madagascar. Araucaria is closely related to the modern-day monkey-puzzle tree. It is very easily seen that this is a cross-section of a branch or limb from the tree. The bark on the outside of the slice is still quite evident. The piece of petrified wood has been highly polished, and the coloration is totally natural and quite beautiful. This is a very displayable example of petrified wood from the Triassic.
A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
