Known as Golden Oak because of its golden color, this is a Miocene-epoch petrified oak tree.
It is about 15-30 million years old and comes the well known Stinking Water area of Oregon.

During the replacement process by silica carried in underground waters, even the most minute details of the woody structure was preserved.
