4.3" Polished Petrified Wood (Palm) Section - Eden Valley

This is a beautiful section of section of petrified palmwood (Palmoxylon) from Eden Valley, Wyoming. One face has been polished to a mirror like finish allowing the much of the inner wood detail to be easily seen. The polished face is 4.3" wide and cut diagonally on the 2.5" long section of petrified palmwood.

Petrified palmwood includes a group of fossil woods that contain rod-like structures within the regular grain of the silicified or agatized wood. Depending upon the angle at which they are cut, these structures show up as spots, tapering rods, or continuous lines. The rod-like structures are sclerenchyma bundles that comprise part of the woody tissues that gave the wood its vertical strength.
