Petrified Wood Stone Sphere Fossil
This is Petrified Sycamore Wood from Washington.
This larger Petrified Wood sphere is 3.25 inches or 85 mm in diameter. It has some natural surface flaws.
Tree trunks were buried under several hundred yards of sediment. Over the course of time the wood was replaced by cryptocrystalline quartz, largely chalcedony and jasper. During the replacement process by silica carried in underground waters, even the most minute details of the woody structure was preserved.
Metaphysical Properties: Petrified Wood is a stone of patience and slow and steady growth.
