Fossilized palm root
Petrified palm root from Indonesia is a special feature of petrified wood. The root in this stone has been replaced by silicon dioxide, which means that you can speak of palm root agate. This process has been done in very high detail, so you can still see the same structures in the fossilized palm root as in a fresh root. The beautiful light and dark contrasts are added to that. This makes the petrified palm root from Indonesia unique in its kind.
How is petrified wood formed?
Petrified wood or fossil wood, is a stone that originated from trees that have ended up under thick layers of volcanic ash. The ash contains all kinds of minerals that slowly dissolve in the groundwater. Because the trees are no longer in contact with oxygen, the wood does not rot as quickly as normal. In the meantime, the groundwater saturates the tree with minerals where they are deposited in the wood cells. Slowly but surely, the wood decays and the minerals take the place of the wood cells. This is done very slowly so that the structure of the wood is perfectly preserved in the minerals.
Petrified wood is the stone of wisdom, it imparts psychic ability and gives you a sense of security when you feel disconnected from the world. Palm root has the additional property that it ensures that you get balance between body and mind. Especially for people who are busy in their head, palm root can bring peace
