SIMPLY GORGEOUS Large 7.5" Blue Forest Petrified Wood Log Sculpture - Beautiful Agate & Fossil Wood!

Regular price $145.00

This is one of the larger and definitely one of the most beautiful Blue Forest log sections that we've worked with recently. It's cut from one of the most detailed, richly colored logs we've ever had the pleasure of handling in fact! Petrified wood from this location is always pretty, but this one is gorgeous, and to see such an incredible display of color and fossil wood grain is just a treat for your eyes as much as for your imagination! This famous petrified forest gives up very few large logs and fewer still in this kind of flawless condition! There is a lot of the characteristic blue agate framing and infusing this specimen that made this petrified forest famous. This one features some nice insect borings revealed in the cut and mirror polished face as well! The pattern in this fossil is one of the most visually striking specimens I've ever seen come from this amazing valley! Polished to perfection, it's definitely one of the best Wyoming petrified wood fossil finds you'll find!!

Here's an absolutely museum grade Blue Forest petrified round cut from the center of a perfectly formed log that's got a lot of brilliantly colored blue agate showing throughout the perfectly preserved log frozen inside. It's got really nice wood preservation with a very well defined heart in the center of the log and the most stunning wood grain you'll ever see in one of these pieces!

The Blue Forest is a uniquely preserved bed of small branches and occasional logs in central Wyoming. The digging is hot and dusty, but every once in a while you stumble on a real treasure and this little log is one of them! The dark, coffee and chocolate colors the wood is preserved in are characteristic of these specimens, as are the infusions of blue agate that filled the cracks and coated the log!

This is a beautifully presented sculpture is crafted from a larger than average sized log from a fossil pepperwood tree that grew in Wyoming over 50 million years ago. It's been cut and polished to show off all the gemmy detail from the gemmy fossil treasure captured inside. It took a pretty awesome polish - something we strive to produce on every specimen we put our name on! The fibrous cell structure of the radial wood grain is exceptional and easily studied with a hand lens. The base is cut flat to present the specimen at the angle shown here while the display face is polished to a perfect mirror finish like only our stones are!

This is a larger than average specimen, and it is close to perfect - something that will show proudly in any collection.

It measures about 7 1/2" x 5" across the polished face and the base is cut about 1 5/8" deep (front to back) at the base. This fine end cut weighs in at 2.16 lbs.

A nice, unique naturally wonderful stone collectible exclusively from Sticks-in-Stones Lapidary
