Madagascar

Number of items: 1
Main Mineral/ Name Meteorite: Ball .... Petrified Wood
Mineral Form/ Type Meteorite: Hand Polished & Hand Cut
Dimensions: 11.7×11.7×11.7 cm
Weight: 2125 g
Origin (Country): Madagascar

A huge and beautiful cut & polished sphere of petrified wood
of 2 kilos and 125 grams and has a circumference of 37 cm and a diameter of
of 11.7 cm.

This is a highly refined specimen with high aesthetic value

All photographs were taken with flash.

On some photos you will see a fault line. It is not that the piece of petrified wood
is broken, but this is the structure of the piece of petrified wood.

See the many photos to get an impression.

This beautiful interior ornament will be delivered with a
hardwood stand, which in itself is a work of art,
and which were made by the very competent local wood carvers
from the town of Ambositra in Madagascar.

Note: The petrified wooden tray on which the tripod stands does not belong to the auction and will NOT BE INCLUDED !!

The dimensions of this beautiful piece of mineral are:
Weight: 2 kg 125 grams
Circumference: 370 mm
Diameter: 117 mm.

Note 1: Petrified wood comes from fossilised wood, in which all the organic materials have been replaced by minerals. This has preserved the structure of the wood beautifully.

Note 2: Gemstone spheres are made from large pieces of gemstone, fault lines may be visible. The impression that the crystal piece is broken is a misunderstanding, this is how crystal grows.
Spheres can be used for divination, meditation or for decoration.

Petrified wood is found in a wide range of colours by variation in the deposits of minerals like manganese, iron and copper. Quartz is colourless, but when iron is added for example, crystals with a red or yellow colour are formed, as becomes evident from below list:

Carbon - black
Cobalt - green / blue
Chrome - green / blue
Copper - green / blue
Iron oxides - red, brown, yellow
Manganese - pink/orange
Manganese oxides - black
Silica - white, grey

Petrified wood is a type of fossil: it consists of fossil wood, in which all the organic materials have been replaced with minerals (mostly silicates, such as quartz), while retaining the structure of the wood. The process of petrification takes place under the ground, when a tree becomes buried under sediment, and can last for millions of years. Groundwater that seeps slowly through the soil, deposits minerals where the lignin and cellulose rot away. If the depositing process goes just as fast as the rotting process, the shape of the cells are retained.

The smallest details can be preserved for eternity. Petrified tree rings and various tissues can be traced to a microscopic level. Petrified wood has a hardness of 7 on the scale of Mohs, the same as quartz.

Will be carefully packed and will be sent by registered mail including Track&Trace.
