11.9" Yellow, Petrified Wood (Araucarioxylon) Round - Arizona
Comes with a display stand.
The petrified wood from the extinct conifer Araucarioxylon arizonicum which happens to be the state fossil of Arizona. The petrified wood of this tree is frequently referred to as "Rainbow wood" because of the large variety of colors some specimens exhibit. The reds and oranges come hematite inclusions within the silica, the yellows from limonite and the purples from magnesium based minerals.
Araucarioxylon arizonicum is estimated to have grown more than 150 feet high and dominated the tropical forests in what is now Arizona nearly 225 million years ago.
