Madagascar Petrified Wood Flat Stone - Small (Singles) | Rare Earth Gallery

Madagascar Petrified Wood Flat Stone - Small (Singles)
Madagascar Petrified Wood is over 80,000,000 years old. The trees originally grew during the Triassic Period. After the trees died, they were buried in sediment; decomposing slowly. Saturated with water/mud rich in silica and trace minerals, eventually the silica and various other minerals replaced the cast left behind by the wood and the logs became stone. The beautiful coloring of the wood is due to traces of iron, manganese, and carbon that stained the silica. Over time, the sediment covering or surrounding the wood erodes, exposing the petrified logs beneath the surface. 
*As each piece is unique and one of a kind, please allow for variations in size, shape, and color of the stone that you receive. We guarantee the authenticity of this gemstone. Your satisfaction is guaranteed.
