Petrified Wood Stone Sphere Fossil
This very nice Petrified Wood sphere is 2.75 inches in diameter. It has some small natural surface flaws.
This is Petrified Sequoia Wood from Saddle Mountain, Washington.
This species of Sequoia sempervirens is about 15 million years old.
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.
