Petrified wood is a special type of fossils and over 20 million years old. It is the result of a tree having completely transformed to stone by the process of permineralization. All the organic materials have been replaced with minerals. This items are naturally polished for a smooth surface. Perfect as a unique detail. Every item is unique and size are approximate. Organic details will vary. Metal legs.

"We literally stopped in our tracks seeing the stunning work of art that is petrified wood, tucked away in a secret street, that suddenly turned into heaven. From a distance we really thought it was wood, but hurrying closer, and then stroking the pieces, sighing with delight, we realised it was stone. Or to be more exact - this amazing material that is petrified wood (which we think is funny too, as it sounds like someone scared it into stone) is a million year (!) natural fossil process of turning wood into stone. Left are those breathtakingly beautiful, completely unique and super cool pieces of the magic of nature eternalised which we couldn't wait to bring home as LW tables or pallets, plates or cheeseboards. We often fall crazy in love on our treasure hunts but some loves are truly eternal and timeless. These pieces are exactly that."
