6" Petrified Wood (Sequoia) With Polished Face - Rogers Mtn, OR

This is a beautiful section of petrified wood with great wood detail and color. It's a section of 20 million year old, petrified wood (Sequoia) from Rogers Mountain, Oregon which has been cut and polished to a mirror like finish. It's 6" tall by 6.1" wide and displays nicely on a flat surface with the accompanied 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.
