Wearable art from nature. This is a very rare necklace as it's made from 20 million year old petrified wood from Indonesia. I have combined with with faceted citrine and faceted teal quartz on a 14k gold filled chain. As shown long this necklace is 20", but please order the size you'd like from the dropdown. I have also shown a photo of how it would look shorter. Lobster clasp closure.
How was this formed?
Indonesia is a volcanic island chain that is currently active and this volcanic activity produces a wide array of unusual minerals and rocks. When wood is buried by volcanic ash and silica is mobilized from the ash, the silica will penetrate into the wood and replace the grains of the wood. Opal is a hydrated silica.
This is a one of a kind piece and a rare material.
