A photo of petrified wood in Arizona went viral and it only took 225 million years After 225 million years, you could say Opal was more than ready for her closeup, Mr. DeMille. Only her name probably shouldn't be Opal — Agatha might actually be closer to her correct geological classification. One thing's for sure though: She rocks. For nearly three weeks now, a photograph of a spectacular specimen of petrified wood has been going viral. It appears in at least 17 discussion groups on Reddit, one of which has more than 41,000 votes and another of which has more than 37,000. And that doesn't include the thousands of comments. Elsewhere, the photo has been Tweeted, Facebooked and Pinterested by hundreds of people, many of whom are awed by the sheer beauty nature hath wrought through the eons. There's no credit line indicating who took the photo. A Google image search shows that one of the earliest versions of the picture appeared in late November on a website called GeologyIn.com under the headline "Opalized Petrified Wood."
