Hello. Can the petrified wood side tables be used in a shower? Thanks, Mike
HI MIke - Thank you for shopping at Airefurniture. Yes the petrified wood table can be kept in a shower . These are million year old wood fossil so it does not change much . Only thing which may happen is the polish we put on the top may diminish but otherwise these can be kept anywhere
About Petrified Wood
Petrified wood literally means " wood turned into stone" . Fossilised wood is created by nature when trees are completely buried under mud sediments or volcanic ash for millions of years and the organic matter petrifies into extremely hard stone or quartz crystals. The original structure of the wood in all its detail, including tree rings, grains, crevices, cracks, gaps, knots and cells is preserved in the petrified wood. The quartz/stone takes on color from the various minerals present in the mud like black from carbon, green and blue from cobalt, chromium and red from copper.
Petrified wood is extremely rare and is found only in few places in the world. Every piece of wood is harvested safely from protected petrified forests. No two pieces of petrified wood, even from the same tree, can be identical. The appearance of the petrified wood depends on the minerals found in the particular forest.
At Aire, we source petrified wood from the pristine tropical jungles of Java and Indonesia, from the forests of Ecuador and Brazil and green dense forests of Canada. The petrified wood is obtained in blocks and slabs and attempt is made to keep it in its natural state as far as possible.
