About the gemstones: Petrified wood is a fossil. It forms when plant material is buried by sediment and protected from decay due to oxygen and organisms. Then, groundwater rich in dissolved solids flows through the sediment, replacing the original plant material with inorganic material. The result is a fossil of the original woody material that often exhibits preserved details of the bark, wood, and cellular structures. Each bead is gorgeous and unique. These green jasper beads feature a green jasper base that has formed with elements of Quartz and Hematite within it, creating a deep moody green accented with metallic black and occasional cream to clear inclusions.
