Burro Street Trading Post

Regular price $2.50

This listing is for a single (1) Petrified Wood fossil. These are natural Crystals and Gemstones, so each stone will be unique and have variations in natural characteristics such as Size, Shape, Inclusions, and Color.

Petrified wood is a fossil. It forms when plant material is buried by sediment and protected from decay due to oxygen and organisms. Then, groundwater rich in dissolved solids flows through the sediment, replacing the original plant material with silica, calcite, pyrite or another inorganic material such as Opal. The result is a fossil of the original woody material that often exhibits preserved details of the bark, wood, and cellular structures.

Petrified wood will transform one into a stronger person.

Found in Utah, Washington and Arizona
