This is a 100% natural AND untreated palm tree fossil that has transformed into a rare boulder opal stone. There is a worm burrow hole visible in the stone. It was mined in Yowah Queensland. This is an exceptional stone and one of a kind.It was an ancient palm tree approximately 100 million years ago that was replaced over time by precious opal. It was found in one pocket with some large specimens. The grain is more closer than wood fossil replacement so the opal colors are a bit stronger. I have heard of only one other opalized palm fossil being found years ago. Other than the price here, its a priceless piece with magnificent beauty and this is the only one of its kind in this world. Museum quality and magnificent for any collector or enthusiast.
