Polished Petrified Wood Slab on Stand
This polished Indonesian Petrified Wood slab is thousands of years old! In the late Tertiary period, blankets of rainforest surrounding volcanoes were plentiful throughout Indonesia. After volcanic eruption these trees were buried by ash and lava. Over thousands of years, the wood was eventually replaced with silica rich minerals such as chalcedony, quartz, calcite, opal and jasper. The beautiful colors in the wood come from assorted trace elements. Traces of manganese create blue and black colors and traces of iron result in different shades of brown and orange.
Slab is polished on both sides. Metal stand included.
