Texas Palm Wood Cabochon, tan specks; calibrated size 30x40cm; mounted in pre-made setting of 9.25 stainless steel from TRIPPS USA
Fossilized palm wood, also known as Palmoxylon, is an extinct genus of palm found around the world. The plants lived from the Late Cretaceous (83 million years ago) until the Early Miocene (34 million years ago). The spotted look of palmwood is caused by fossilized rod-like structures within the original wood. Depending upon the angle the stone is cut, they show up at spots, tapering rods, or lines. The fossilization process involves the replacement of organic wood cells by silicate minerals over time.
