PRODUCT INFORMATION


General Description

Madagascar's Diverse Petrified Wood Creations: Madagascar is renowned for its exquisite petrified wood products, offering an extensive range from XXXL slices to gallets, palm stones, pyramids, and prisms. Slicing is the primary transformation method, with only a fraction of the material being crafted into alternative forms. Petrified wood, although dense and exceptionally heavy for its size, poses a unique challenge due to its remarkable hardness. The captivating array of wood colours, which range widely, is skilfully worked to reveal the intricate growth ring patterns, adding to the allure of each piece. Much of the regional material dates back to the Triassic period and is botanically associated with the genus Podocarpus. Petrification, the remarkable process in which organic material is transformed into a fossil through the replacement of the original material and the filling of the original pore spaces with minerals, is perfectly exemplified by petrified wood. This captivating phenomenon extends to all organic entities, from bacteria to vertebrates, each with the potential to become petrified and thereby preserved for eternity. Price is grade dependant. Items are as shown.
