Petrified Wood is actually not fossilized at all! The organic matter is replaced by minerals (mineralized), keeping the original look of the wood, but with no organic wood remaining in its place. They are a unique part of Albertan history, and can be polished.
These pieces in particular have an incredible wood structure that has been maintained. Great for decoration as a rustic and warm visual accent...millions of years in the making!
