Product Description

Rare Australian fossilized peanut wood* topped with a wood/bone dangle on a sterling silver earwire. 1"

 Petrified Peanut Wood is a rare type of petrified wood from Western Australia that comes from trees which grew 70 million years ago in the Cretaceous period.  Peanut wood refers not to the type of tree, but to the appearance of the peanut shaped light color markings against the blackish background of this petrified wood.  It was created when wood washed into the ocean and became a home to small marine clams.  Eventually the wood sank to the ocean floor, where it filled with sediment and slowly petrified.  This process created a uniquely beautiful petrified wood with a glossy shine and marvelous patterns when polished.
