Stunning, Richly Coloured, Fossilised Slice of Wood 0180
Item Code: 04062016/0180 (Foreshore Code)
A beautiful slice of fossilised Monkey Puzzle like Tree/Branch (Araucaria Sp. an evergreen common in the Triassic period). From Madagascar, the wood slice has been skilfully polished to bring out, and highlight, the lovely rich colours (which the photos don’t do justice to). This is a beautiful display piece and truly exceptional rich colours in multiple shades. Some remnants of bark on the outside are clearly evident, which has remained on the wood when buried and fossilised up to 240 million years ago. Remarkable preservation considering the age and the unpolished side reveals just as much detail as the polished side, as polishing merely highlights what is already there and brings back to life the colours/contrasts hidden for millions of years. Such a beautiful piece for any collector and worth every penny of the asking price, which includes recorded delivery as standard, we take care of these works of art from the day we hand pick them until the day you receive them in perfect condition.
13.5cms in diameter and approx .1cm thick, comes with display stand.
