Petrified Wood

Petrified Wood was once an ancient, living, breathing tree. It was buried and fossilized, over a long period of time, and the organic parts of its structure were replaced by minerals. The markings and patterns on the stone are the original tree’s growth rings and knots. This petrified wood selection includes palm wood, which is from palm trees. The majority of our selection also provides stones with pre-drilled holes to accommodate your stringing needs.
