Any BRIGHT WHITE SPOTS seen are reflections of my lights used for photographing the specimens.

Indonesia Wood Piece  - $2.00 each (Great for kids!!)


Each sphere was created in Indonesia from a larger piece of “rough” fossilized petrified wood.   Any “cracks” that you see are naturally occurring fractures that have re-cemented over the eons and thus are stable and in no danger of breaking or shattering. In addition, you’ll often see veins of clear quartz crystals and/or crystal-filled cavities. All are natural and unique to each specimen. 

Petrified wood is a type of fossil consisting of ancient wood where all the organic materials have been replaced with minerals (usually crystalline quartz), while retaining the original structure of the wood. The petrifaction process occurs underground, when wood becomes buried under sediment. Mineral-rich water flowing through the sediment deposits minerals in the plant's cells, and as the plant's lignin and cellulose decay away, a stone mold forms in its place. Elements such as manganese, iron and copper in the water/mud during the petrification process give petrified wood a variety of color ranges. Since pure quartz crystal is colorless, only when such contaminants are present do the crystals take on a mixture of other colors. The following is a list of contaminating elements and related color hues:

• cobalt - green/blue
• chromium - green/blue
• copper - green/blue
• iron oxides - red, brown, yellow
• manganese - pink/orange
