Petrified Wood Freeform (PW10.5)


  • Although petrified wood comes from several localities in Madagascar, our primary source is near the city of Ankondromena, in the Menabe region of western Madagascar, in the former Toliara Province.  (Province de Tuléar in French). 
  • Because deposits of different ages are often mixed during collection, scientists date it broadly as Triassic in age (~252-201 million years ago). 
  • Most Madagascan material is preserved Araucarioxylon wood, a genus of evergreen trees related to the modern araucarias.
  • Sourced: Africa Madagascar
  • Size: 4" x 4" x 8"
