Petrified Wood is the result of a tree turning into stone through the process of permineralization.
All the organic materials of the tree have been replaced with silicate minerals, usually a quartz, while maintaining the woods original structure.
Unlike other kinds of fossils that are compressions or impressions, Petrified Wood is a three-dimensional representation of the original organic material.
The petrifaction process happens underground , when wood starts to get covered by sediments and preservation first begins as a result of the lack of oxygen.
Mineral-rich water thats flowing through the sediments deposits minerals in the trees cells and as the trees lignin and cellulose start to decay, a stone mould also begins to form .
Wood takes approximately a hundred years to start to petrify , a process that can take tens of thousands of years to fully develop , and it is believed that it can even lay undiscovered for several million .
New stock always arriving if none of the available pieces suit .
Perfect for the bathroom or cloakroom.
