This stunning polished fossilised wood and black powder-coated metal base side table is an extremely unique, petrified wood slice top lamp table with metal legs. Petrified wood is the name given to a special type of fossilized remains of terrestrial vegetation. Petrifaction is the result of a tree or tree-like plants having been replaced by stone via a mineralization process that often includes permineralization and replacement. The process takes place when wood becomes buried under sediment or volcanic ash and is preserved due to a lack of oxygen. Each table will vary in appearance to the design pictured as they are all naturally made making every piece is unique.
