A Madagascar Petrified Wood Round mounted atop an original Acrylic on Panel painting. On the island of Madagascar off the coast of Africa is found one of the largest petrified forests on earth, and is considered by many to be the oldest, at over 220 million years old. This absolutely choice petrified wood piece represents a most fascinating and beautiful specimen to come from this ancient forest. It has a most interesting Brecciated pattern, giving the interior a marvel of artistic shapes and crystal pockets. This incredible -- seldom seen -- pattern variation with subtle green and crystalline areas makes this a true museum-quality piece, having all the features of a top gem fossil specimen from this area.
