ARIZONA PETRIFIED WOOD FOR SALE
The Arizona petrified forest is probably the best known in the world due to its vibrantly colored “rainbow wood” and the Petrified Forest National Park. This petrified forest extends over a huge area, around 100k acres, but only a small portion is located within the national park. The fossilized wood found in the Chinle Formation is Late Triassic in age, or approximately 225 million years old. The dominant tree species in the forest is Araucarioxylon arizonicum, a type of conifer related to the living “Monkey Puzzle Tree”.
