Fossil Wood Sphere 11.5cm
Fossil Wood Sphere, fossil and crystal for sale from India.This marvellous, large sphere measuring 11.5cm in diameter has been cut from a Fossil Wood log and polished to reveal the vividly coloured Jaspers which have replaced the original wood very slowly in the process of silicification. We have just received a new, unique batch of Fossil Wood sourced from Madhya Pradesh in India, where it is sometimes referred to as 'Trees of Stone'. This rare wood has been beautifully polished to a high standard during its preparation in our Indian workshop.
This sophisticated piece is unique in both appearance and origin, and displays predominantly maroon hues with streaks and clouds of white, and elements of caramel and black in a kaleidoscope of colour. There are some exciting inclusions of metallic hematite.
It is estimated that the wood is 40 million years old, dating back to the Cretaceous Period. Fossil Wood, otherwise known as Petrified Wood, is believed to have many healing properties, including the ability to relieve tension and induce a sense of calm in its user. Due to its connection to the Earth, Fossil Wood has a grounding aura and can increase feelings of security.
Carefully carved into a sleek sphere shape, this piece is perfect for both fossil and crystal lovers.
