This specimen exhibits a very rare green color for Arizona petrified wood. The color is likely caused by Vanadium (but there are some claims as the color being caused by Chromium). There was apparently only one small find of this material said to be from the Upper Chinle Formation of Macklepring Wash in a remote area on reservation land outside of the national park. The species is likely Woodworthia arizonica.
Condition: Composed of massive material.
Flaws: Essentially massive material.
