  • Details
    Petrified wood is considered to be a fossil that was preserved by silicification. Silicification is the replacement of original skeletal material through the concurrent dissolution of calcium carbonate and precipitation of silica.

    This crushed petrified wood is from Arizona and formed during the Late Triassic period. At that time, downed trees accumulated in river channels that were subsequently buried by sediment containing volcanic ash. Groundwater then dissolved the silica from the volcanic ash and carried it into the logs, where it formed quartz crystals that gradually replaced the organic matter over time. Iron oxide and other trace elements combined with the silica to create the variety of colors that we see in petrified wood from Arizona today. This super gorgeous material with a wonderful geologic story!

    Material Size:
    Medium - material is considered to be medium to fine (sand), ranging between 2 millimeters to 0.25 millimeters.

    This product is NOT man-made, mixed with resin, or stabilized. Stone authenticity is extremely important to all artisans; therefore, we validate the source of all our minerals before they are crushed. All of our minerals are handpicked by me (Missy) at some of the largest mineral shows in the United States.

    Please see product images for color, approximate size, and quality. Pictures are taken in full sun - material is dry. Measurements are using the metric system (millimeters).
