A rare piece of Petrified Fern Wood from Australia - raw, wild, earthy - set as pendant on leather.
Handmade from scratch by Natures Art Melbourne - which is me :)
Fossilized wood of a fern tree - preserved forever - a piece of natural history.

I cut this gem stone in a truly natural shape - this is what it wanted to be.
The outside edges are the natural edges of the original piece of Petrified Fern Wood
- the front is highly polished showing amazing fern tree patterns.
- the back is not polished at all - even though nice and smooth, simply matt and not as vibrant in colour - you will be surprised how much polishing does to a stone - but we usually only see polished rocks.
I like to show it all - raw, matt & polished, shiny - all there is in the process of creation.

A bit of background to the beautiful patterns in petrified fern - every single fern leave has its own connection right down to the roots, the little circles you can see are the little tubes bringing the water up through the trunk to the leaves. An expert in fern trees will be able to tell you which species of fern tree it was simply through the pattern in the single circles.

Nature did an incredible job to preserve the patterns forever.
It was a tree around 180 million years ago (jurassic) which got replaced by minerals in a very very very slow process. It is all stone now.
I did not find this stone myself it comes from Lune River, Tasmania.

I drilled it and set it with sterling silver wire.
It comes on brown leather 47 cm (28.5”)
Please let me know if you prefer a different length - any is possible.

Stone size: 50 mm x 39 mm x 9mm (1.96” x 1.53” x 0.35")
Pendant length incl. setting: 62 mm (2.4")
