Sis: Unusual Red & Gold Hubbard Basin Petrified Wood Slab For Sale
Ever long for a world class petrified woodspecimen from one of the world'sgrandestpetrified forestsbut struggle to find one you could afford? Here's a truly flawless, museum gradeslab from my favorite petrified wood deposit and you name the price! The color spectrum represented in this log cross section is fairly unusual for this deposit. The color is primarily gold with plenty of rusty reds and a few blue and darker accents. The log itself is classic Hubbard, right down to the very hard agate that captured every pore of the log before it decayed!The wood grain is very visible in this one,revealing several spike knots in a whorland the polish is particularly nice.Just amazing! The latest incredible Hubbard from 's original rockshop - don't miss it!
Here's an absolutely gorgeous, flawless petrified wood round from one of the most prized petrified wood deposits ever discovered! If you aren't familiar with the Hubbard Basin petrified wood from Nevada, you should be! It's a very colorful variety, though true collectible pieces from this location are not plentiful. This piece has all of the best colors that these coveted specimens are famous for and then some! The characteristic blue, white, red, black and gold along with a lot of other colors appear to have been painted into the stone with the single intention of drawing a gasp from the fossil wood collector on sight!
Besides being beautifully colored, it's also perfectly preserved. The flowing wood grain from this complete round starts at the heart (near bottom edge) and forms massive arcs through every region of this highly colorful wood. The cells are uncommonly well preserved for Hubbard Basin wood with virtually every colorful region showing excellent wood grain preservation right down to the ray cells within the growth rings! The detail in the lighter regions is washed out in the photo, but it's easily visible in the actual stone. Hubbard Basin petrified wood is highly prized among fossil and gemstone collectors because of it's uniquely beautiful blue color and gold, red, etc. inclusions. It's also some of the best agatized wood to be found and is sometimes even translucent (this round is in several regions). Wood is relatively scarce from this region and true collector pieces are very seldom encountered. The qualities that make a piece valuable are color, completeness, shape and fracture free - this piece has them all and severalopen crystal cavities to boot!
This is a nice, large cross section of petrified wood for this location - a very nicely sized display piece. Most of the logs in this deposit were larger spruce and other conifers. This round is complete, although most of these specimens were from softer wood species and like their cousins in Cherry Creek (Nevada's other famous deposit) they tended to get "squashed" in the ground forming oblong rounds when cut. This one is a conifer of some variety (probably spruce).
