"Nogales" Petrified Palm Root Amulet Pendant


I recently discovered Petrified Palm Root and I'm totally in LOVE! The different markings this stone has are SO enigmatic and exoticthat I can never get over them! This one in particular is dressed in non-tarnish vintage bronze wire and small Japanese seed beads at the bottom. It has been Reiki infused and comes with a free 18" inch black silicone cord.

This dramatic beauty measures:

2" inches / 5.0 cm in height (from top of bail to bottom of piece)

7/8" inches / 2.2 cm in width (at widest point)

Petrified Wood is also known as fossilized wood. The name Petrified Wood comes from the Greek root petro meaning "rock" or "stone", so stone wood or wood turned into stone. It is technically a psuedomorph or chalcedony after wood. The conditions required in order for a tree or plants to be petrified do not occur often. Only a small percentage of all the trees and plants that have grown upon earth have been petrified. In order to fossilize or petrify, plants or tree trunks were buried under several hundred yards of sediment. Over the course of time the wood was replaced by cryptocrystalline quartz, known as chalcedony.

Petrified Palm Root is the fossilized wood of palm trees from the Oligocene Epoch, about 20 to 40 million years ago. The stone contains prominent, rodlike structures within the regular grain of the silicified wood, which form the characteristic spotted look of palm wood. Depending on how the stone is cut, these structures show up as spots, tapering rods or lines. Petrified Palm Wood is very hard and takes an excellent polish, making it a great stone for jewelry.
