8.2" Petrified Wood (Schinoxylon) Round With Calcite - Wyoming

This is a beautiful 8.2" round of petrified wood (Schinoxylon) from Eden Valley, Wyoming. This colorful slice of petrified wood has been highly polished on one side, by one of the top polishers out there. It doesn't have any of the tool marks or scuffing that might be left by lesser quality polishers. It has veins of blue calcedony running through it along with golden yellow calcite.

It was formed when trees died and fell into a swamp where they were rapidly covered by algae. This formed casts that preserved the original bark surfaces and kept the trees from decaying. Eventually the algae casts and the spaces between them were filled in by minerals, often in exquisite, crystalline form.

It comes with an acrylic display stand.
