4.4" Petrified Wood (Araucaria) Slab - Madagascar

This is a colorful slab of petrified Araucaria (Conifer) wood from Ambilobe, Madagascar. This 220 million year old petrified wood has been sliced and polished on one side allowing the stunning inner wood detail to easily be seen. It comes with an acrylic display stand.

Petrified wood is the name given to wood that has been turned into stone (fossilized) through the process of permineralization. All of the organic matter becomes replaced by minerals, while much of the original structure such as tree rings in retained. For this to happen the wood needs to be buried in an environment both low in oxygen (preventing decomposition) and with flowing mineral laden water.
