SL101 Palm Wood

SL101 Palm Wood

$15.00

This is a wonderful set of smaller Petrified Palm Wood Slabs from Louisiana! They measures 3 3/4″ x 3 1/8″ x nearly 1/4″ thick and 3 3/4″ x 2 7/8″ x  1/4″ thick. These slabs weigh a little less than 1/2 lb. These particular slabs are durable enough to cut and polish for cabochons and other projects. Take note of the last photo showing slabs wet to give an idea of how it could look polished.

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 gives 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.
