Fossilised Tree Trunk

Fossilised Tree Trunk. The tree trunk has been completely transitioned to stone by the process of Permineralization. All the organic material has been replaced with minerals (mostly Silicate such as Quartz) The petrification occurrs underground when it becomes buried under sediment or volcanic ash. The fossilisation quartz is colourless but when contaminants are added to the process the crystals take ... Read More »
