Petrified Heart! Hundreds of years ago, a fallen tree in Madagascar lay buried in a rare, oxygen-free state. Very slowly, mineral-rich flowing water replaced the organic material with all inorganic stone (a quartz/chalcedony mixture). Time passed, this ancient being was discovered, and a piece was shaped into the beautiful heart you see now. And that's the story of how this majestic fossil came into existence. A fairy tale of sorts? Perhaps. But most certainly a tale of preservation and ancient wonder. What an honor to be in its presence! Stand included.
