TITLE FOSSILISED WOOD SLICE 17898
DESCRIPTION Petrified has the Greek root petro meaning rock or stone and this thin polished slice is a good sized specimen retaining its "bark" edge. This tree was buried millions of years ago and was initially preserved through lack of oxygen. It was then completely transitioned to stone by a process of permineralization where all the organic matter is replaced with minerals such as quartz.
