1.65" Palm Wood (Palmoxylon) Pendant with Snake Chain Necklace
This is a beautiful, 1.65" tall petrified palm wood (Palmoxylon) pendant. This highly detailed specimen was collected from Louisiana and has been polished to a glossy finish. It comes with a 24" long, silver plated snake chain necklace.
Petrified palmwood includes a group of fossil woods that contain rod-like structures within the regular grain of the silicified or agatized wood. Depending upon the angle at which they are cut, these structures show up as spots, tapering rods, or continuous lines. The rod-like structures are sclerenchyma bundles that comprise part of the woody tissues that gave the wood its vertical strength.
