Copper-replaced Petrified Wood New Mexico

An unusual combination of copper-minerals INSIDE Petrified Wood! While most Petrified Wood forms in neutral colors, this wild specimen was replaced by some bright and bold copper minerals. Chalcocite and Malachite replaced the Petrified Wood, creating dark contrasts and bright greens in the wood and surrounding Sandstone. This beautiful specimen came from the Nacimiento Mine in New Mexico. The Petrified Wood at this location has been dated to Triassic Age, approximately 225 million years old!

Approx. 3.5" H x 2.75" W x 1.25" Deep
