Petrified Wood Museum Field Kit - Actual Authentic Fossil
From our Museum Field Kit(tm) collection : Petrified Wood is a fossil formed by the infiltration of minerals such as Quartz or Calcite into natural wood. The petrifaction process occurs when wood becomes buried under sediment and is initially preserved due to a lack of oxygen. Then minerals in water flowing through the wood replace the decaying wood, forming a stone replica of the original. This process is so precise that tree rings, bark, and even the cell structure can still be seen! The different colors in Petrified Wood are caused by different minerals in the water.
