Petrified wood cabochon stud earrings in gold or silver.
Wear a 225 million year old fossil! These were mined in the Arizona badlands outside the Petrified Forest National Park and the Navajo Nation. We purchased the rocks directly from the guy who mined them, and had it custom cut.
A birthstone for the zodiac sign of Leo, petrified wood is literally trees that turned to stone.
Over millions of years, wood was replaced by agate, creating the fossil we call petrified wood. Petrified wood is the state fossil of Arizona, and Native American medicine men used this material to protect against injury and infection.
The color varies; these will be darker shades of brown, brownish orange, and brownish red.
