Scio,Oregon petrified wood
« on: October 30, 2018, 08:45:00 AM »

 My fingers can't type words over the photos of this material. Rogers Mt. ended many days with the flash light dig.

  Now a gold claim for WHAT are you hauling home. Gold dust or wood.

  Photos of material I've dug since the 60s.

Nice material.  And solid too.

Lovely wood! Nice to see some with such good grain preservation and agatization, so often it seems to be one or the other- agate limb cast or just fragments. Nice finds!

I rock hunt in the Antelope/Ashwood area of the John Day river basin in Oregon. 90% of what I post is from this area, from private property where I have permission to hike and collect. The material I find is for personal use only, I do not have landowner permission to sell. Thanks for understanding!
