Petrified Wood Stone Sphere
This little Petrified Wood sphere is about 1.5 inches or 40 mm in diameter.
It is Petrified Wood from Queensland, Australia. It is known as Chinchilla Red Wood.
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.
