FO822 Black Hills Petrified Wood

FO822 Black Hills Petrified Wood

$100.00

This is a slab of Petrified Toriedo Petrified Wood specimen with unusual Worm Holes from the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota.  It measures 8 3/4″ x 5 1/4″ x 1 7/8″ thick and is highly polished on the front face. This great piece was cut and polished in our very own Lapidary Department.  This beautiful specimen has a nice shaded Brown color with Darker and lighter Brown accents.  This material is unique in that it is very unpredictable; this fantastic piece has lots of clearly visible worm holes making it a truly one-of-a-kind item. Grab this one quick! It is actually a bit darker than appears in the photo. A perfect work of nature.

Description

Petrified Wood is a type of a fossil as it consists of fossil wood where all the organic materials have been replaced with minerals while retaining the original structure of the wood.  These minerals are most often Silicates such as Quartz.  Other minerals, Manganese, Iron and Copper, in the water or mud during the petrification process give Petrified Wood a variety of color ranges: black – Carbon; green/blue – Copper; red/brown/yellow – Iron.  Petrified Wood can preserve the original structure of the wood in all its detail all the way down to the microscopic level.  Structures such as tree rings and the various tissues are often observed features.  Although Petrified Wood can be found worldwide, it is rather rare in larger quantities and at times can be difficult to obtain by the average collector.
