This is a lovely fossilised wood sphere. Some call it petrified wood due to it having turned to stone.
This sphere weighs 178g and measures 50mm from left to right (as you look at it).
This piece is roughly 120 – 150 Million years old, the Triassic period. When wood falls, it is quickly covered with fine-grained sedimentary rock, this allows for petrification, which preserves a large proportion of the original form of the wood. Growth rings, outer bark and even worm holes in the wood can be preserved in this process.
I have a lot of petrified wood at home. I love how it keeps me grounded and connected with my true self. It has a deep, almost ancestral knowledge to it and tells me that all will be well if I keep steady and sure. It allows me to breathe and feel easy.
It is said that Petrified wood can assist in past life recall and is especially useful for grounding insights one gains from experiencing these memories (Simmons).
A stone of Roots Naisha Ahsian calls it and I agree with her. Beginnings and ancient knowledge. The Old Ones of the Earth.
Affirmation – I grow and evolve slowly, steadily, with strength and patience, drawing from the lessons of my soul’s history.
Thank you for looking

If you select 1st class post at checkout, your item will be sent 1st class once the order has been prepared. Please be aware of the dispatch dates and times.

OVERSEAS – Postage rates – 8th Jan 2021
At the time of updating this document on the 8th of Jan 20201, all International post will need to be sent using a tracked service. This is because the Covid19 pandemic has and is still causing considerable delays due to staff shortages and back logs in customs. I am not responsible for this but with tracking, I can at least let you know where you order is. Once your order has left us here, it is then in the hands of the postal service/gods!
From 1st Jan 2021, buyers are responsible for any customs, VAT and import taxes that may apply.
