Remnants of giant trees from ancient forests, these logs turned from wood to rock after the trees were buried under layers of sand and silt. Unlike other types of fossils which are typically impressions or compressions, petrified wood is a three dimensional representation of the original organic material. In some cases, the microscopic structure of the wood was preserved during the process and can still be seen. Contact us if you are interested in purchasing Petrified Wood.
Petrified wood displays a variety of colors resulting from the minerals it contains--pine quartz for white and gray, iron for the reds and yellows, browns, blues, and greens, and carbon and manganese for the black.
