Petrified wood is undoubtedly one of the most spectacular and beautiful looking material. Petrified wood is a rare find and it has been said that only a small proportion of the petrified wood can be cut and polished into pieces that can become prized specimens for collections that appreciate its beauty. Before speaking of its beauty and appeal let’s first talk about what basically petrified wood is and how does it become a stone slab? Petrified wood is a special kind of material formed over millions of years when plant material is buried by sediment and then is protected from decay by oxygen and organisms, Petrified wood basically undergoes a process which is known as permineralization to become a fossil. Petrified woods that are suitable for stone slabs are selected by hand and are brought back for careful inspection. The petrified wood chosen has to be generally free from any fractured in order to be suitable for the slab. Further, petrified woods are cut individually and are filled with resin, transforming it into a slab through a combination of nature and highly skilled craftsmanship.

How Old is Petrified Wood
The process of petrified wood making is over a thousand years old but most of the petrified wood is around millions of years old. Storms and flooring once filled the tropical lowlands of the area with the sediment, mud and mineral-rich water to cover the dense thick of trees. After the forest was covered, the volcanic eruptions scattered ash and high silica debris across the land. Further, the addition of the ash smothered the organic material which was then left for petrification. The petrified wood slabs supplied and exported by us are of rich quality material and are hand-selected and made using highly skilled and professional craftsmanship.
