PR800 Petrified Wood

PR800 Petrified Wood


This is an awesome specimen of Petrified Wood from South Dakota. It has a beautiful array of Brown colors in the highly polished face accented by various different textures around the edge.  The nice polish brings out the wonderful character of the wood showing the true beauty.  This Petrified Wood measures 11 3/8″ across the widest x 6 1/2″ x 2 1/4″ thick and weighs nearly 8 1/2 pounds. This one-of-a-kind piece was created right here in our Lapidary Department. The piece is actually darker than appears in the photo.  Exceptionally nice!

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.
