4.3" Gary Green Jasper (Larsonite) Bog Wood Stand Up - Oregon

 
This is a 4.3" wide (or tall depending on how you look at it) section of jasper replaced petrified wood that was collected near McDermitt, Oregon. The section weighs about 2 lbs and has been polished to a mirror like finish on one side. Two sides are flat so that it can be displayed in multiple orientations. It has absolutely stunning blue and green coloration.

Gary Green Jasper, also referred to as "petrified bog wood" and/or "Larsonite" is a form of petrified wood from a location near McDermitt Oregon, on the Nevada/Oregon border. It's believed to be wood that was covered by volcanic activity between 11-15 million years ago. The volcanic event covered this area in debris that deprived the plants of oxygen, halting the decay process. Minerals from the volcanic ash then acted as the replacement material for this petrification/mineralization, giving the wood these vibrant colors.
