Fossilised Wood Branch 29.1cm
Fossilised Wood Branch End, fossil for sale from Madagascar. This magnificent fossil has been mounted on a highly polished stainless steel bespoke stand: including the stand, the piece is 29.1cm tall. One face has been polished to enhance the colourful jaspers which have replaced the original wood very slowly in the process of silicification. In addition to the sophisticated cream and beige colour scheme, this particular piece has a rare inclusion of gorgeous dark green tones due to its chromium component. This fossil wood is from the Araucaria Tree, or as it is more commonly known, the Monkey Puzzle Tree. Dating from the Triassic Period, this fossil is an awe-inspiring 248 million years old. The Monkey puzzle tree population is in decline today so here is a chance to own a living fossil from Madagascar.
