Precious Wood from Java and Sumatra
Furniture and rare pieces
Petrified wood, which is between five and 20 million years old, is found in the volcanic areas of Java. The island was once the scene of numerous volcanic eruptions, burying entire forests beneath layers of ash. The interactions between the silica in the cinders, water and the wood itself resulted in a sedimentation process that petrified the wood over time. In spite of its fossilisation, the wood preserves all of its characteristics, from its shape to its grain. Once extracted, the petrified wood is cut and polished.
