FJD OR 99. Prineville area fern-like Museum Piece. Here’s something different. You be the judge because I am uncertain – It appears to be some sort of fern. Most of this material I’ve seen is heavily fractured but this one’s in nice condition and is a rare full round with pretty much no fractures. All natural but for the cut and polished end. 34 by 64 mm mirror-polished face; 7 cm long; nine ounces.  $100

FJD OR 153. Grassy Mountain Museum specimen. Succor Creek formation; Miocene, Malheur County, OR. Rugged, surface-collected wood from Grassy Mountain with much allure and interest. The shape makes you wonder what the heck happened to this tree over the last thirty-million years. No doubt it spent the final few millennia knocking around a hot and windy desert, lending it a rugged demeanor. A beautifully patinaed hunk with one cut and polished face that offers an elaborate display of color and design. No filler or glue – the thrill of natural beauty. 13 by 3 cm mirror-polished face; 5 cm thick; one pound. $225

OR 74. Museum specimen. Swartz Canyon. Elm. Specimen round elm section. Nice colors and cell preservation. 12 by 8 cm mirror-polished face and 12 mm thick; seven ounces. $45

OR 75. Museum specimen. Swartz Canyon. Elm. Specimen round elm section. Nice colors and cell preservation. 12 by 7 cm mirror-polished face and 12 mm thick; six ounces. $45
