Indonesian Petrified Wood Sphere On A Custom Profile Stand | Rare Earth Gallery

A stunning carving and statement piece for your home, this Petrified wood Sphere is adorned on a beautiful custom stand, displaying its marbling hues of amber and tan. Petrified Wood is a special type of fossilized remains of terrestrial vegetation; the result of a tree having "wood turned into stone." It is the result of a tree having completely transitioned to stone by the process of Permineralization. All the organic materials have been replaced with minerals (mostly a silicate, i.e quartz) while retaining the original structure of the stem tissue. Unlike other types of fossils which are typically impressions or compressions, petrified wood becomes buried under sediment or volcanic ash and is initially preserved due to lack of oxygen, which inhibits aerobic decomposition.
