Petrified Wood is a fossil in which the organic remains have been replaced by minerals in the slow process of being replaced with stone. This petrification process generally results in a quartz chalcedony mineralization. Petrified Wood can preserve the original structure of the stem in all its detail, down to the microscopic level. Structures such as tree rings and the various tissues are often observed features.
This Petrified Wood is from the Rainbow Beds in Navajo County, Arizona. Referred to as “River Run” or “River Tumbled”, these minerals are naturally tumbled over the course of hundreds of years near the Petrified Forest in the vicinity of Holbrook, Arizona.
