Very decorative piece of trunk, fully polished. Unique about this piece are the expressive different colours.

The colour of this object and the beautiful form make this a unique piece.

This object is the trunk of a petrified tree (fossil wood) from Indonesia.
The tree structure and the grains are very well preserved and all the details are very well visible.

Petrified wood is a stone that can form because trees end up under a thick layer of volcanic ash. The ash contains minerals that dissolve in the groundwater. The wood does not rot and the ground water enters into the tree and the minerals are deposited in the wood cells. Slowly but surely, the minerals take the place of the wood cells. This process happens so slowly that the structure of the wood is preserved perfectly.
