~ Hell's Canyon pet. wood cab ~

Offered here is a cabochon of petrified wood, an unsual and rare form from Hell's Canyon near the Idaho/Oregon border. (Read more about it on my blog.) The species is said to be sequoia, showing fascinating wavy annual growth lines. This example has great contrasting lines, and varying shades of rich brown to creamy beechnut coloration in its many stripes, but next to none of the rare fortified agate voids. I'm no expert on pet wood, but this material seems opalized to some degree, and it certainly is GORGEOUS! This cab has a nicely rounded dome of 6mm, a graceful designer 'flame' shape, and a slick glassy polish both front and back.

Size: 49x18mm
Weight: approximately 32 carats

Price: SOLD See current gemstones for sale
