Description

This is a very good sample that has been recovered in a coal mine. Only a few specimens of fossilized wood came out there, found by a single miner only. The specimen is in very good condition and shows very fine quality in polish. The former structure of the wood is excellent preserved. In the caveties at the side quartz is crystallized as well.

No more material can be expected from this location.
