This pendant bead is made of petrified wood. Petrified wood is wood that has turned into stone by the process of permineralization, meaning that the organic material in the tree has been replaced with minerals (for example quartz) over a period of time. This process is quite complex and fascinating so I suggest a little research to learn more about the process.
This pendant is a lovely example of petrified wood with it's smooth allover polish and lovely mix of taupe and deep brown tones. A fine, natural pattern enhances it's organic appeal. There is a hole drilled crosswise through the top edge and I have inserted a head pin to show it's placement. It measures 34mm high x 26mm across the widest center point x 14mm thick. You will receive the exact pendant bead shown.
