This is a very nice petrified wood fossil. It is a slice of Araucaria wood from the Triassic of Madagascar. Araucaria is closely related to the modern-day monkey-puzzle tree. It is very easily seen that this is a cross-section of a branch or limb from the tree. The bark on the outside of the slice is still quite evident. The piece of petrified wood has been highly polished, and the coloration is totally natural and quite striking. This is a very fine example of petrified wood from the Triassic.

A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
