DescriptionOrnamental Petrified Sequoia Wood Sphere
The fossilized Sequoia material used to craft this decorative sphere was created over 56 million years ago. When the Sequoia tree died, it was buried in soil with low oxygen and all its original organic material was replaced slowly by various minerals. The minerals created the interesting color banding while keeping the integrity of the trees internal structure visible. Seen in this Petrified Wood sphere are lovely earthy tones including taupe, rust brown, chocolate brown, haunting swirls of metallic gray and streaks of jet black. For this sphere to be made, the original piece of wood would have had to have been approximately three times larger! This piece is in excellent condition and is an easy way to display something unique and ancient.
