Petrified wood art and furniture


One of the more striking pieces I spotted at the Tucson gem and mineral shows today is this conference table [right] made of a single slab of Arizona petrified wood.

Ralph Thompson with Russell-Zuhl Petrified Wood in Massachusetts, polishes slabs all year as art pieces and furniture and displays them only at the Tucson show.

I did not ask prices.

  1. If it is true petrified wood that means it is rock. How much does it sell for?

  2. Hi Lee--

    have you visited Jim Grey's Petrified Wood Co. in Holbrook?

  3. I've driven past the Holbrook storage yard with acres of petrified logs but haven't stopped in. It's overwelming.

    And as I mentioned in my post, I did not check prices on the furniture pieces. But last year we saw a circular petrified wood table exquisitely set in a hard wood base, that went for $14,000. So you can get an idea on the high end.

  4. Hello sir,
    you have a nice wood. Is that from a jungle?
    Can you supply it to other country?

    Hello Lee, Re: Jim Gray's Petrified Wood Co., it is hardly a storage yard. I suggest you stop in.

  6. Such table cannot be use in offices, but these can be use in restaurants etc.
