BLACK PETRIFIED WOOD
BALANCE & HARMONY
Petrified Wood blends the complex patterning of primordial tree rings with the full spectrum of warm brown to dark black earth tones. This stone draws its energy from the strong roots of the tree. It projects both stability and flexibility, filling the area with a sense of continuity and well-being. It is a very grounding stone in nature.
Black tones are common colors found in petrified wood. Although it’s rare to find a piece consisting entirely of black, most petrified wood will feature at last some in it. When carbon is mixed into the water where the wood is submerged, it will create black.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE
The ever-lasting finish requires only simple and routine care to maintain its good looks. To clean our surfaces, we recommend using warm water, mild detergent, and a soft, white cloth. Stubborn Stains or Dried Spills Any mild cleaner or detergent can be used on stubborn stains. To remove adhered materials like food, gum, and nail polish first scrape away the excess with a plastic putty knife. Then wipe away with denatured alcohol to remove stubborn marks. However, the surface should be rinsed with water immediately.
Our surfaces can tolerate moderately hot temperatures for brief periods of time. Direct contact between very hot pots and the surface should be avoided. We recommend using an insulator / hot pad / trivet, especially when using cooking units like electric fry pans, woks, and kettles.
TOUGH – YES. INDESTRUCTIBLE – NO.
Avoid any highly caustic cleaning agents like oven and grill cleaners and dishwashing agents that have high alkaline/pH levels. Products containing oils or powders may leave a residue and should be rinsed off thoroughly. Should your surface accidentally be exposed to any of these damaging products, rinse immediately with water to neutralize the effect. Scratch Resistant Our surfaces are highly scratch resistant. However, avoid using sharp objects directly on the surface.
