This breath taking petrified wood agate slab is arguably the most dramatic from an unprecedented and impressive collection of pieces we're fortunate to be able to offer. It's a massive and colorful petrified wood (stone) slab from a truly magnificent petrified log - by far one of the most impressive I've seen in a lifetime of collecting! Those incredible tiger stripe red patterns are completely natural and formed in the stone as the tree was slowly fossilized over an unimaginable span of time. This is a choice slab cut thick enough to be used as a table top but could also be mounted on a wall as a natural work of art. The highly polished gemstone surface reveals every detail of the ancient wood grain from this giant petrified conifer. At more than 200 million years old - this is a truly ancient piece of natural history with a beautiful story to tell! Each table top ships in a custom built wooden crate. We also sell bases if you need one for a table.
Here's an absolutely gorgeous, complete and colorful petrified wood round from one of the most prized petrified wood deposits ever discovered in Asia!! It's a very colorful variety that easily rivals the best wood found anywhere else on the planet. It's highly agatized and takes a fabulous polish. This piece is fairly fracture free and quite solid, making it one of the best specimens I've seen for use as a table top, but it still makes incredible wall art as well.This piece has all of the best colors that these coveted specimens are famous for and fantastic growth rings - it was a gigantic tree! This magnificent stone will draw a gasp from the fossil wood collector or simple nature lover on sight! It's plenty big enough to make a very impressive table top! Besides being beautifully colored, it's also perfectly preserved. The flowing wood grain from this complete round starts at the heart and forms massive arcs through every region of this highly colorful wood. The cells are uncommonly well preserved for Asian wood with virtually every colorful region showing excellent wood grain preservation right down to the ray cells within the growth rings! The detail in the lighter regions is washed out in the photo, but it's easily visible in the actual stone. I've never encountered wood this large, this colorful, this well preserved and this affordable! Wood is relatively scarce from this region and true collector pieces are very seldom encountered. The qualities that make a piece valuable are color, completeness, shape and fracture free - this piece scores well in all of these dimensions! If you haven't seen our petrified wood specimens before then you've been missing one of the best treasures found on eBay! We work hard to find the best specimens from the most prized locations!
