15 NICE LARGER PCS PETRIFIED WOOD - TEXAS EOCENE
YOU ARE BIDDING ON 15 PIECES OF PETRIFIED WOOD FOR ONE MONEY. THEY ARE VERY BEAUTIFUL AND INTERESTING ! I FOUND THEM IN SITU, AND SLIGHTLY BELOW THE EXPOSED SURFACE IN BRAZOS COUNTY, TEXAS. OUTCROP MAPS SHOW THE SANDY MIDDLE EOCENE SERIES (APRX 50 MILLION YEARS OLD) OUTCROPS IN THAT VICINITY. SINCE THERE ARE ALSO KNOWN SMALL COAL SEAMS IN THE AREA, I SUSPECT THEY ARE FROM THE CLAIBORNE GROUP, POSSIBLY THE FORMATION IS YEGUA OR COOK MOUNTAIN, I AM NOT SURE. PALEOBOTONY IS NOT MY FORTE BUT THE TEXTURE OF THE PIECES SORT OF SUGGEST TO ME A CONIFER OF SOME TYPE. THEY ARE PERMINERALIZED (CHERT OR FLINT) SO THE DETAIL OF TEXTURE IS GOOD. THEY RANGE IN LENGTH FROM ABOUT 4-7" LONG, 1/2-2" THICK AND WEIGH ABOUT 3/4 TO 1 3/4 OF A POUND EACH. THE COLORS RANGE FROM YELLOWISH TO REDDISH TO BROWNISH TO WHITISH IN COLOR -- VERY BEAUTIFUL. PHOTO SHOW THEM NUMBERED FROM 1 TO 15, WITH A CLOSE UP OF NUMBER 5. IF YOU WANT A MORE DETAIL PHOTO OF ONE, PLEASE REFER TO THE NUMBER AND WE WILL EMAIL IT TO YOU!
