This stunning and rare petrified wood slab exhibits partial replacement of vibrant copper based mineral, Chrysocolla.
“Colla Wood” is a rare blend of petrified wood and minerals that have infused the wood over time. These minerals are associated with copper deposits, and include chrysocolla, which originally lead to the name "Colla Wood".
Silicified wood containing copper minerals was discovered in 2012 in the Black Sea region, when a petrified log was excavated by gold prospectors near the town of Zile, in Tolkat Province, Turkey. The regional setting suggests that the wood is of Miocene age.
Due to the natural variation of the fossil, the one you receive may look different from the ones pictured.
