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`
FJD UTAH 42. The Knob at 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. 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
