Well, not me, but this piece of wood was scared into stone. Okay, okay, it wasn’t scared so much as it was turned into “fossil wood” over time, all the organic matter replaced with minerals. This specimen is from the Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona. It has a lot of iron oxides in it.
There are petrified forests all over the world and I highly recommend you find one and check it out. It’s like traveling back into time.
Can you find the little piece of moss trying to grow on this fossilized log? Can you name the song I referenced?
