7.3" Polished, Petrified Wood (Tropical Hardwood) Slab - Burma

This is a detailed, 7.3" wide polished slab of petrified tropical hardwood from Myanmar. Tropical hardwoods are notoriously difficult to identify down to a genus or species, such is the case with specimen. The slab has been polished to a mirror-like finish on one side with no dull spots.

Comes with an acrylic display stand.

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.
