Petrified wood is a fossil. It forms when plant material is buried by sediment & protected from decay due to oxygen & organisms. Then, groundwater rich in dissolved solids flows through the sediment, replacing the original plant material with Silica, Calcite, Pyrite, or another inorganic material such as Opal.
This slab of Petrified Wood is so amazing because of its hints of red & undertones of yellow! Such a gorgeous specimen to set on the table of your home or office!
Petrified wood looks great as a decoration or for specimen collection. Petrified Wood is used to help connect with the earth & nature. It is a good way for city dwellers to keep nature nearby & encourages people to respect their environment & live in harmony with the planet.
