I just received these Hells Canyon Petrified Wood cabs and cannot wait to create a necklace from the one on the right.  The herringbone pattern in this stone is what makes it so unusual.  The little holes are actually dry rot that formed in the wood before it was petrified.  Hells Canyon is located on the Idaho and Oregon border and is now submerged under water as result of the Brownlee hydro electric dam built in the late 1950's.  There is very little of this beautiful stone available - needless to say it is also pricey.  Check back in a couple of weeks and I will have posted a new piece made from this awesome cabochon.
