Arizona Rainbow Petrified Wood Stone Sphere Rock

This hand-cut Petrified Wood sphere is 2 inches in diameter. It is Petrified Wood from Northern Arizona.

The material has natural fracture lines, this one has a "circle" partly seen in the last picture.

This gemstone is the fossilized wood of trees. The Petrified Wood formed when a tree died and was buried by sediments. Minerals in the groundwater then permeated the wood, replacing the original organic matter and turning it to stone. The main mineral is silica, but trace elements in the silica create a variety of colors.

Northern Arizona is the home of the Petrified Wood Forest, a National Park since 1962. The park sprawls over 346 square miles and is one of the richest troves of the late Triassic Period fossils (210 million years old).  It is considered  one of the most important Petrified Wood areas in the world. Some logs as long as 213 feet have been found there!

Metaphysical Properties: Petrified Wood is a stone of patience and slow and steady growth.
