Petrified wood occurred when a prehistoric tree fell into mineral laden water, mud or volcanic ash. The substance which covered this tree would starve the tree of oxygen which is the driving force of decomposition. With the decaying of the tree occuring at a much slower rate than usual, it slowly becomes infused with minerals which over time crystallise, replacing its original structure. The end result is petrified wood, a fossil of the original piece of tree in the structure of a rock.
Much of our petrified wood comes to us from Java and Bali. These pieces will style and class any home in any setting reglardess of your design style!
