Museum Quality Specimens for the Collector

fossil wood: Colorado

Colorado 2. Museum specimen. Large log. Parker, Colorado. Tertiary hardwood from the Denver Basin. This log has a lot of character. It came from an old collection and was probably collected prior to 1960 in an area that is now covered with subdivisions near Denver. It appears to be a large branch that was violently ripped from its trunk, maybe by a yeti or a saber toothed tiger. Cut and polished on one end. The polished face has lovely golden color that looks like caramel. What cell structure there is is indistinct. 39 cm long; 6.5 by 9 cm mirror-polished face; ten pounds and two ounces.  $250

Colorado 5. Museum specimen. Full round log section. Parker, Colorado. Tertiary hardwood from the Denver Basin. Cut and polished on one end. The polished face has all of the colors we look for in these. A nice example of Parker wood with top colors and textures. Amazing under magnification. 18 cm long; 72 by 80 mm mirror-polished face; ten ounces.  SOLD
