• arizona-petrified-wood-16'


This is a piece of 200 million years old, petrified wood from what is arguably the most famous petrified wood deposit around – the great Arizona Petrified Forest! Don’t worry, this wood was mined (as it still is today) from a private ranch near Holbrook, AZ, not pirated away from the National Monument. Despite some of the wild claims you see in various eBay auctions, this wood is still quite available and legally for sale at reputable rockshops including the big one just outside the monument.

The problem with being famous is the folklore that follows I suppose. The reason this wood is so famous is pretty clearly demonstrated in this gorgeous specimen. Arizona wood (Rainbow Wood as it is sometimes called) is just filled with rich colors, often dominated by red and black but covering every color in the rainbow! This lovely specimen is a very attractive and unusually patterned, richly colored log that really shows the wood grain and color off better than some of the giant display pieces often will!

This absolutely massive and beautiful piece of gem fossil wood is cut from one of the most colorful Arizona rainbow petrified wood logs I’ve personally handled! It’s an extra large stand-up display specimen cut from a fairly full cross section of an enormous log.

It was collected by a friend of mine on a private fee ranch in Arizona near the town of Holbrook. It’s some of the most colorful wood I’ve ever seen come from this famous petrified forest. It stands firmly on a cut base as shown in the photo and the face is polished to a mirror finish as only we promise on every piece we offer. The sides are rough and natural while the back and base are cut smooth and flat.

The display face is polished to a mirror finish to reveal the magnificent color of this 200 million year old fossil gemstone! This giant sculpture is approaching the limits of what I can produce in my shop – you won’t find many like this anywhere in the world! It has a very impressive presence that would look amazing as a mantel piece, on a bookshelf or even a desk or table!
