Beautiful Petrified Wood Fossil Specimen I - 7 3/8" wide
Genuine petrified wood fossil specimen. Polished to show detail.

It is the result of a tree having turned completely into stone by the process of permineralization. All the organic materials have been replaced with minerals (mostly a silicate, such as quartz), while retaining the original structure of the wood. Stand not included. From Indonesia. 7 3/8" x 6 3/8"
