Petrified wood

This is what the fossilized remains of terrestrial vegetation are called.

EXPLANATIONS:
Petrification is the result of replacing a tree with stone through a process of mineralization. The organic materials constituting the cell walls have been replaced by minerals (mainly silica in the form of opal, chalcedony or quartz). Petrified wood becomes a three-dimensional representation of the original organic matter.
The process of petrification occurs underground, when wood is buried in waterlogged sediments or volcanic ash. Mineral-laden water circulating in sediments can lead to remineralization (when minerals rush out of solution and fill the interior of cells and other empty spaces). Plant cell walls act as a template for mineralization.

Here are some things that make petrified wood furniture unique in the world:

THE STYLE
There are several types of colors for petrified wood furniture, all of which are influenced by the sediments in which they were fossilized. The most common colors are chocolate black, pearl gray or beige, but they are also found in reds and oranges.

ARTISANAL FARING
Like every piece of furniture for sale in the market, handcrafted products are always of a higher quality than those made with machines. Craftsmen pay attention to the smallest detail which adds more aesthetic value to the furniture.

THE SUSTAINABILITY OF THESE SOURCES
It is always better to look for craftsmen who respect environmental and ecological standards. Kif-Kif Import, as a direct importer specializing on international purchasing (global market sourcing), supports local manufacturers, especially in Jodhpur, Bali and Chiang Mai, by sourcing products only from craftsmen and qualified and green companies.
What is magical with a piece of petrified wood furniture is knowing that you have a unique piece that witnesses the evolution of our Earth.
