How To Create Fossilized Wood?
madeland posted a topic in Questions & AnswersMy interest is in current earth conditions that would be amenable to the creation of fossils, specifically petrified wood. I want to place wood in a position where it will be likely to form petrified wood at some point in the distant future for an artistic project. I am not a scientist, although I am reasonably scientifically literate. Nevertheless, there may be blind spots in my assumptions here. I would love to hear any thoughts that forum members might have. I would imagine a group of experienced fossil hunters might have a good idea of what past conditions have been good for fossilization.
