A LITTLE INFORMATION ABOUT PETRIFIED WOOD. Petrified wood is a fossil. It forms when plant material is buried by sediment and protected from decay due to oxygen and 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. The result is a fossil of the original woody material that often exhibits preserved details of the bark, wood, and cellular structures. Some specimens of petrified wood are such accurate preservations that people do not realise they are fossils until they pick them up and are shocked by their weight. These specimens with near-perfect preservation are unusual; however, specimens that exhibit clearly recognisable bark and woody structures are very common. The image shows the ACTUAL SPECIMEN you will receive unless otherwise stated. We only sell the finest minerals, crystals & fossils. Please remember this when comparing our specimens with others. Please also check the sizes of competitors’ specimens. Many photograph their specimens to appear much larger than they actually are, resulting in disappointment. We usually include a 1cm cube in at least one of the photographs to give a sense of scale.
