Long Description:
"Petrified Tree from the Pike Forest, Colorado. This section weighs five tons and measures 7 1/2 feet in diameter. The original Tree, estimated to have been 200 feet tall, was part of a sub-tropical forest 55 to 70 million years ago in what is now Colorado. Scientists believe it to be of the Redwood Sequoia Species. During some prehistoric era a cataclysmic upheaval caused silica laden water to overspread the living forest. Wood cells were unchanged during the course of time to sandstone. Opals were formed within the tree trunk itself."
