Eocene Petrified Wood From Ukraine

Recommended Posts

RomanK

These couple of specimens were gifted to me by friend of mine from Lisichansk (Lugansk region, Ukraine, just next to Donetsk reg.) who lives in Germany at the moment but spend some days in September to visit Donetsk coal heaps. Age Eocene.

Specimen from Lugansk reg. partly opalized

You have plants from many ages in the Ukraine!

Do you know what this Eocene site is like, and what else is found there?

That was a sandpits as said my friend in Lugansk and Kharkov regions. There was shells and petwood there.

Nice wood, Roman! In Kyiv sands, which are also mainly Eocene age, some pieces of a wood also occur. They look like your specimen from Kharkov reg. I will make some pictures of the wood, when I cope with scanning of my teeth. Maybe, you could help me to identify it.

What's interesting, all my wood have annual rings, despite Eocene climat of Ukraine was subtropical/tropical. Do you know, which climat conditions make the rings to disappear?

That's great!

Not only in Kyiv! This summer I was in Cape Capchik, in Crimea, and there found a gratolite, petwood bits and other fossils. See here

In Posdnyaki, in sand inwashes

The specimen from Karkov looks exactly like what we find in Delaware.
