Description

 

With a long shape rising upwards, this mineral has so much personality that it looks like the work of a contemporary artist. The predominant color is a gradation of black with white veins. The natural wood base was specially made to hold the mineral. Not only does it ensure stability and protection, it adds an extra design touch to this magnificent object. We are all know of the great fascination minerals have come to have in the world of international design. In modern interiors, from classic to Pop styles, it has become fashionable to use minerals as furnishing accessories. This piece of peerless beauty is a perfect example with proportions and appear that make any interior unique. There is something miraculously magical about the formation of minerals and fossil woods. The essential condition for a tree (usually ginkgo, cedar, or ebony) to become a mineral is a process that happens due to the lack of oxygen. This is why the great majority of fossils were formed following a volcanic eruption. Ashes can preserve a tree in a perfect condition for millions of years. But how do such fantastic veins form as we see in this piece?  It is when the wood is infiltrated by manganese iron ore or sometimes copper. This process developed over a period ranging from 50 to 270 million years in the ages known as the Triassic and Cretaceous Jurassic Ages.
