Green Petrified Wood (Chromium)
This Chromium Green Petrified Wood is one of the rarest petrified wood ever discovered. It originates from a single deposit near Winslow, Arizona that was unearthed in the 1970's. By carbon dating it has been determined to originate from the Chinle Formation, Triassic era - approximately 180 million years ago. This specimen was once a conifer tree (Araucarioxylon Arizonicum) that grew to near 200 feet tall with a width of approximately 6 to 8 feet. During fossilization process, the organic matter from this tree was replaced with the element Chromium (Cr). the agatization process resulted in a natural mint green color.
Using high magnification lens we capture images deep within the microscopic typography of the stone and can transport the viewer into a micro world, far beyond what the naked eye perceives. Then we transfer those images onto luxurious fabric for "Stone Scarves”! Chiffon, lightweight and translucent, is the material of choice for our scarves as it allows for the printed design to be visible on both sides. The ultra-sheer fabric is printed using ecologically-safe transfer sublimation inks that provide vibrant color and strong wash durability. The printing process consumes no water and uses non-toxic bio-degradable inks. (We recommend washing machine with phosphate free detergent on a warm or cool delicate setting. Tumble dry low or line-dry)
Select size either (approximately) 36"x52" or 26"x72 and we will ship your beautiful scarf to you!
