What is Petrified Wood?

Petrified, or fossilized, wood is wood in which the vegetable material has been replaced by minerals, usually silica. The silica may be in the form of jasper, agate, chalcedony or even opal. For this process to occur the wood must buried in mud, ash, lake sediment or other material to exclude oxygen and prevent decay. The varied colors of petrified wood are created by minerals such as iron oxide and manganese oxide, that enter the wood in solution with the silica.

ABOUT NICKEL SILVER

Nickel silver, also called German silver, is an alloy of copper, zinc and nickel, but contains no silver. Navajos occasionally used it in place of coin silver and sterling silver, usually in earlier work. This alloy is very hard and does not tarnish like sterling silver and costs much less. Nickel silver was sold in flat sheets and the Navajo originally obtained this metal from their neighbors, the Utes, who worked it in the plains style of metalwork. Mostly tribes of the plains, prairies, and Great Lakes areas worked in nickel silver. Read more about stones.
