Natural Polished Petrified Wood Rectangular Table Lamp With Black Shade
Natural and organic as it comes, petrified wood is the name given to a special type of fossilized remains of terrestrial vegetation. It's an phenomenal result of a tree having completely transitioned to stone by the process of per-mineralization.
All of the organic materials have been replaced with minerals (mostly a silicate, such as a quartz), whilst retaining the original cellular structure of the stem tissue. Unlike other types of fossils which are typically impressions or compressions, petrified wood is a three-dimensional representation of the authentic organic material.
The petrification process occurs underground, when the wood becomes buried under the sediment and is initially preserves due to a lack of oxygen which inhibits aerobic decomposition.
The Natural Polished Lamp base reflects the hues of the minerals that has filled it's pores, as copper, cobalt, chromium and manganese dispersing an unsurpassed iridescent hue.
