Make a fascinating accent to any space with this fine Petrified Wood Specimen.
Petrified wood is formed when wood is covered by sediment, and the organic matter is gradually replaced by crystals and minerals. Quartz is most common, but the colours found in petrified wood depend on the type of crystals. Brown and yellow colours are usually produced by iron oxide, black by carbon and rare pink by manganese.
With its combination of organic shape and crystal structure, this petrified wood specimen makes a striking ornament and a wonderful gift for anyone interested in botany and natural history.
