9.4" Fossilized "Peanut Wood" Section - Australia

 
This is a 9.4" wide section of petrified wood from Australia known is "Peanut Wood". It is actually petrified driftwood that is full of boreholes from clam larvae of the genus Teredo commonly know as shipworms. These boreholes were filled in by a white mineral during the fossilization process, giving this petrified wood it's unique appearance. The wood itself is from Aruacaria, a type of conifer and is Cretaceous in age.

Comes with a gibson display stand.
