There's something exceptionally beautiful about the grain of wood, the concentric and spiral layers showing rate of growth, each of which holds a story of the tree's history.
This petrified (fossilised) specimen from the monkey puzzle tree, Genus Araucar, is particularly gorgeous. It will make a wonderful and unique decorative item for the home, with the bonus of creating a talking point: monkey puzzle trees belong to the Araucariaceae family, which can be traced back to around 250 million years ago!
