“The rarest form of Montana petrified wood is called Channel Wood. This type of wood is black and white. What it lacks in bright colors, it makes up for in detail. The black reveals the unique wood grain while the contrasting white quartz appears to drip through some of the ring growths. Visually, it looks much like contrasting geometric shapes. The Smithsonian Institute has verified pieces of Montana Channel Wood as ancient Sequoia trees, which were charred in a fire and then fossilized. It is the carbon from the fire that produces the black color.”
