Petrified wood is found in a wide range of colors, but green is certainly rare worldwide. I'm told that the color is caused by nickel content, and it's not dyed, as you can clearly see solid green patches on the back (unpolished side) of the piece. The form of the original tree is clearly seen and well-preserved. If you look closely, you can actually see patches of beautiful soft lilac and golden-brown colored banded Agate which has filled in some of the open vugs in the wood! This is INCREDIBLY rare in our experience with this material, and certainly makes the piece more desirable for collectors. We don't sell a lot of fossilized material, but we found these at the Tucson Show and couldn't pass them up due to their unique and alluring color. The species is Woodworthia sp., which is a primitive conifer from the Triassic epoch dating back approximately 200 million years. Beautiful material and certainly different from your run of the mill petrified wood.
