Petrified Wood Rounds from Queensland, Australia

This page is dedicated entirely to Queensland, Australia, Petrified wood. These collector specimens are all slices taken from the very best petrified logs I've been able to obtain from this distant continent and I think you'll agree - I've found some beauties! They represent some of the finest Australian pieces I've ever seen. This wood is very highly agatized and takes a marvelous polish. It reminds me of the highly agatized Scio and Rogers Mountain petrified woods here in Oregon's Willamette valley in that it is densely agatized and a dream to work with! Polished to a mirror finish, each piece is cut flat on the back unless otherwise noted.Each is first come first served - send us an e-mail if you'd like to purchase or use the PayPal shopping cart to order immediately and pay online through PayPal.

Yet another amazing variation in petrified wood that I'd never seen before acquiring this collection. The color pattern in this particular log is absolutely unique - I've seen nothing else like it from this forest! 5 3/8" x 3 7/8" - PRICE:$44 - SOLD

A typically perfect preservation right down to the intricately defined conifer cell structure (shown under microscope in 2nd photo above) - this (and the hard agate preseration) is why I was so attracted to this marvelous petrified wood! A wonderful, complete, smaller round. 4" x 2 7/8" and cut about 3/4" thick - PRICE:$29 - SOLD

Uncommonly dark and richly colored round for this area. It is also infused with thousands of tiny specks of a metallic mineral that I assume is marcasite. Exceptional cell preservation is the rule in these pieces. Truly beautiful. 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" - PRICE:$55 - SOLD

One of our largest Australian specimens in a full, flawless round with excellent agate and wood grain preservation. Darker color combination that really shows the mirror polish off nicely. 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" - PRICE:$79
