FJD UTAH 27. Yellow Cat red wood. Super interesting specimen round with rare tubes, nice exterior wood impression, and a crown of crystal quartz. Nice color and balance. No glue or filler. Provenance is Ivan Kladder Collection followed by my collection. All natural all around but for the cut and polished face. No glue or filler. Found at the original Yellow Cat site. 3.5 by 4.5 cm; 3 cm thick; 3.7 ounces. $250

FJD UTAH 30. Big Thompson Canyon Henry Mountain wood. Jurassic; Morrison formation. Utah fossil wood hunters would call this a full round, although it is in reality just a portion of a larger tree. It’s a nice example with an interesting exterior with much red agate. The face includes tiny red agate inclusions. Specimen round, cut and polished on one end, otherwise as found. No glue or filler. 5 by 3.5 cm mirror-polished face; 12 cm long; one pound and three ounces.  $115`

the cuts are not parallel

FJD UTAH 42. North Wash. Henry Mountains. Jurassic; Morrison formation. Specimen round cut and polished on both ends. Attractive cabinet specimen from a small locality with wonderful mineralization – fine grained silica with a broad range of muted colors, predominately tan to gray but with an area of confetti-like structures where the wood looks as if it’d been smashed but is actually beautifully mineralized. I can’t explain it, but it’s colorful and interesting. Rugged exterior is deeply patinated. No glue or filler. 7 by 4.5 cm mirror-polished faces; up to 8 cm thick; one pound. $85

FJD UTAH 46. Henry Mountains – south slopes. Jurassic; Morrison formation. Tapered, driftwoody, full round – cut, prepped, and polished on one end. Attractive and fascinating form and colors – the beautifully preserved cell structures prove to you it’s not actually the full round of the original tree. It’s what we call a Utah full round. 5 by 6 cm mirror-polished face; 77 mm long; ten ounces. $85
