Origin: Holbrook, Arizona, USA
Description: Arizona rainbow wood is difficult to get commercially, because most of it is now a protected site. This wood is legally obtained from the last ranch it can be dug on. The wood is about 212 million years old- so its not really wood anymore. The colours in this wood are awestriking. purples, reds, yellows and oranges... much like a beautiful sunset. Route 66 of USA used to cut right through this site, now it is protected as the Rainbow Forest Petrified Forest National Park.
