Big Eyed Fossilized, Palm Wood Designer Cabochon (G-055)
The pendant cab measures 45x36 mm; weighs 8.7 grams; Dome 4 mm.
Beautiful Big Eye Fossilized, Palm Wood, from Southern California Area . This material has Black and White Orbicular Forms over Creamy Metrics making a beautiful pattern for unusual Jewelry. The Striking Black forms a piecing contrast against the Creamy color. Some of the Orbicular Forms appear as though brushed across lightly with a paint brush. There are still some of the familiar Black on white dots at the bottom of the cab.
Tree trunks were buried under several hundred yards of sediment. Over the course of time the wood was replaced by cryptocrystalline quartz, largely chalcedony and jasper. During the replacement process by silica carried in underground waters, even the minutest details of the woody structure were preserved.
This is actually a psuedomorph-chalcedony replacement in the wood. Therefore Petrified Wood is actually a member of the chalcedony family with a hardness of 6.5 to 7.
The patterns differ in so many ways from sticking color shapes within the stone to all one color usually in solid polka dot tan to brown colors with sometimes a burgundy shade of red. Any way you cut fossilized Palm wood it makes a beautiful cabochon and takes a great polish.
