Product Description

Petrified Wood Stone Bead Pendant Fossil

This lovely Petrified Palm Wood bead pendant is 35 mm long or 1.25 inches by 17 mm or .75 inch wide and 9 mm thick.

This piece is polished all the way around and drilled with a small 3 mm hole side to side near the top. It can be strung on a wire or cord or incorporated into your own bead creation!

This is Petrified Palm Wood, or Palmoxylon, from Louisiana. In 1976, Louisiana named Petrified Palm Wood their official state fossil.

Petrified Wood is wood that has fossilized; a tree died and was buried by sediments, minerals in the groundwater then permeated the wood replacing it, and making a stone-like replica of the original wood.

This gemstone is the fossilized wood of palm trees from the Oligocene Epoch, about 20 to 40 million years ago.

There are no growth rings in the Louisiana Palm Wood, instead it has a fibrous structure that cut one way produces polka dots, and cut another produces straws. Though usually beige, minerals present in the soil and water during petrification sometimes produced blacks or reds, and even on rare occasion other colors.

Metaphysical Properties: Petrified Palm Wood is said to remove petty annoyances and enhance one's connection to earth and nature. It is considered a stone of patience.
