PR411 Petrified Wood

PR411 Petrified Wood


Here is a very different item here at the Rock Shed.  This is a pretty Woodworthia Petrified Wood specimen from Zimbabwe.  This gorgeous piece measures over 5 1/4″ x almost 3 3/8″ x 3 1/4″ tall and has been highly polished on the top end to show the lovely colors it is made of.   The sides are left natural showing the rough bark and how this material had seeds coming out of the bark.  This piece was cut and polished in our own Lapidary department.  A very unique and beautiful addition to any rock collection.

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.
