25" Arizona Petrified Wood Table With Metal Base

This is a gorgeous, 225 million year old, polished Arizona petrified wood table. It's made out of a 26.7 x 16.8" rip-cut (along the grain) petrified wood section which has been cut flat polished to a glossy-finish on one side. The petrified wood bears beautiful brick-red coloration with two yellow streaks. The wood itself weighs just under 73 lbs, and weighs 78.5 lbs when including the base.

This wood is similar to petrified wood found in the Petrified Forest National Park near Holbrook, Arizona. Its petrified forest encompasses nearly 100,000 acres, and is almost entirely represented by the extinct conifer Araucarioxylon arizonicum.

The petrified wood from Araucarioxylon arizonicum happens to be the state fossil of Arizona. It is frequently referred to as "rainbow wood" because of the large variety of colors some specimens exhibit. The reds and oranges come from hematite inclusions within the silica, the yellows from limonite, and the purples from extremely fine hematite spherules.

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.
