On a trip to California with my family back in 1959, we visited the Petrified Forest. I was only ten years old, and already had a love for rocks and minerals. Stopping for gas just outside the forest, my father asked the owner if there was anywhere that you could purchase the petrified wood. The owner then proceeded to give my dad this specimen.He told us that he was owner of some of the land that made up the forest. My father ended up giving him $10.00 for the 5lb.specimen.This was my very first mineral specimen and launched my love for this hobby. The specimen measures 13.7 x 11.9 x 7.1 cm.
