The breath-taking colors and patterns make this board appear like an artist’s masterpiece. The strong burgundy reds typically found in an Arizonian petrified wood specimen frame the center river of color that streams across the board. The colors and patterns that run the length of this board are a joy to explore; vivid waves of golden hues, stormy greys, cremes, and soft opal whites whisk across the specimen.
Over millions of years, this extinct tree avoided decaying and was instead – through pure luck – was preserved by nature. Minerals now replace the biological structure of this woody trunk, creating a solid specimen. With a clear definition of the outer and inner layers, there is plenty of patterns to explore.
Exuding warmth and excitement, petrified wood has a story – it was formed in the prehistoric age and is completely one of a kind due to the unique combination of natural minerals that created it.
At a modest size of 18” X 44”, it is best wall mounted to showcase its exceptional features. Alternatively, the Arizonian board could be converted to a side table to add excitement to a luxurious room. Whatever the method of display, it will bring joy as you explore the hidden history locked in this once giant pine.
