Condition: Like New

This sand-colored specimen is a moderately sized, well-preserved piece of petrified wood, passed down through generations, now forming part of a cherished family heirloom. Its sharp edges and resemblance to a freshly broken piece of oak wood bear witness to the intricate process of permineralization that has replaced the organic materials with minerals, effectively turning wood to stone while preserving its original structure. The lack of contextual origin details does not diminish its value as a tool for understanding fossilization but does leave its specific historical and geological narrative to the imagination. This piece of petrified wood is elegantly mounted on a piece of oak, creating a visual and tactile contrast between the ancient and the contemporary.
