Petrified woods

Petrified wood derives from a fallen tree completely buried in an environment without oxygen that would cause rot. It is believed that the wood was covered with a thick layer of volcanic ash with a high concentration of silica. Probably this ash was carried by a stream of very hot water and contained many minerals including iron and magnesium, in addition to silica. It is the presence of these minerals that causes the magnificent colours of petrified wood, ranging from white to pale yellow, red-orange, bright blue, yellowish brown and black darker.

The petrified wood is used in the interior design, from tables to floor covering up to furniture.
