SiS: Beautiful 1 lb. Petrified Driftwood Natural Sculpture Specimen - SEQUOIA!

Regular price $42.00

This is a smaller sized sculpture that has a very stout and solid, beautifully textured profile that turned out just wonderfully!  I've always loved the rich wood grain pattern in these wonderful specimens and this piece is one the reasons this wood remains a favorite to work with.  It really shows the flowing growth structure of the original sequoia tree clearly!  The color is just "warm" and there's no better word do describe it.  The front is polished to a mirror finish while the back is cut smooth and flat.  The sides are naturally weathered.  Having a nice piece of petrified driftwood that is so readily identifiable and so distinct in appearance is a rare treat.  The wood grain in this gem agate really comes out with the liquid perfect polish and the rich natural color variety in the gemstone gives it extra character.  This is one of the most solidly agatized types of petrified wood you can find anywhere and when properly prepared with our signature polish, the pieces make timeless, ancient natural treasures ready to display on your desk or mantle!!  Our petrified wood stand-ups make wonderful unique gifts for anyone that loves science, nature or art!!  The presentation angle (with the cut base flat on a table) is as shown in the photos.

This is a really beautiful specimen of the petrified driftwood found near Oregon's Roger's Mountain. It's a pretty nice wedge shaped piece of petrified wood, with absolutely gorgeous gem quality agate in many colors preserving this ancient fossil. The exterior is worn smooth to the touch, but you can still see the wood grain in perfect detail. It looks just like a piece of driftwood from the beach today would look. The inside however is a richly colored array of gem quality agate that preserved the wood grain beautifully in every detail! The growth rings in this attractive fossil specimen are very well defined and flow artfully. These are particularly wide in this piece indicating that it was a very fast growing tree species - it's really a lovely specimen!

This wedge shaped display piece was cut at a steep sloping angle and then polished to show off all the gemmy detail inside. The base is cut flat so that you can present it nicely without a stand and show it off on a bookshelf or table. It took a beautiful polish, it really does look like a mirror! As beautiful as the face is with all those gorgeous flowing colors, the exterior is almost as interesting with an intricate, weather worn surface that's just fascinating to study. It's another one of those beautiful fossil treasures that some happy Sticks-in-Stones customer is going to flip over!

This stunning piece stands about 4 1/4" tall  measures about 4 3/8" across (wide) x 4 1/2" high across the polished face.  Weight is 0.92 lbs.

Another Sticks-in-Stones Lapidary quality stone collectible!
