EGG702 Petrified Wood

$55.00

Here is a very nice Petrified Wood egg from Madagascar.  It measures 4 1/4″ tall x 3 1/8″ with a nice polish.  This egg has a beautiful color combination of Reds, Cream, Brown and various other accents as well as cool crystal areas all in a gorgeous design!  It would make a great addition to your collection. There is a fill area which does not detract from it’s stability or beauty and has been reflected in the reduced price. This type of material is known for the occasional internal fractures and flat areas which are common to Petrified Wood.

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.
