Imagine this lovely specimen in your waterfall display or featured next to a barbecue pit or indoor fireplace. Found in the vicinity of Chambers, Apache County AZ, near the Rio Puerco River during land moving operations. It is part of the Morrison Formation dating to the late Jurassic period when a series of volcanic ashfalls obliterated and covered vast areas of forest, allowing for the eventual petrification of the wood. The value of petrified specimens is based on how fresh or recent it appears in relation to its age. The vast majority of petrified woods bear relatively smooth, shiny surfaces which are lacking in distinctive surface characteristics. When a specimen retains striking surface features such as natural textures, branch remnants, bark, and/or knotholes, its rarity and value increase considerably. This specimen has tiny wormholes, lichen, and signs of rot as well as a prominent hole near the top. It is free-standing at 32″ high, with a butress spread of 24″. Very few examples of petrified DRIFTWOOD have been found and are virtually unheard of, putting this amazing specimen in a class by itself. It is a one-of-a-kind museum quality piece and a genuine work of nature’s art at its finest. MUCH MORE IMPRESSIVE IN PERSON!! The adage “must see to believe” certainly applies in this case. Visitors remark about its ability to fill a room with its majestic presence. This is one rock that’s better than jewelry!
