Post_IL PREGIO DELLE PIASTRELLE LEGNO CON PETRIFIED TREE

Imagine that you are in a completely fossilised prehistoric forest. All the trunks are intact, but the sap that once flowed through them has been replaced by exquisite minerals, encased in rough petrified bark shells.
Petrified Tree reproduces all the excitement of this discovery on wood tiles, faithful to the original and rich in details drawn by the hand of time.

The process by which wood is transformed into stone is called silicisation, and involves the transformation of all the organic matter in the tree’s trunk into minerals (especially quartzes and silicates). Petrification takes place underground, when the trees have been covered with sediments that prevent oxygen from reaching them. The salt-rich rainwater that flows through the forest seeps into the ground and adds different colours and shades to the wood. The wood’s look and colour vary depending on the type of ground in which it is petrified.
The tree is transformed into stone with the original structure of both its bark and its heartwood intact; the product derived from it is a precious material, a miracle of nature. Elements such as manganese, iron, copper and contaminated quartz crystals give the petrified wood a wide variety of colours.

A panorama of shades, hues and textures, Petrified Tree transforms wood tiles into something really new, never seen before, stunning in the sophistication and depth of its details.
Stunning with two versions that recall not only choice types of timber but also marble, in gloss version but also with a matt finish, with thrillingly tactile crystallised vein patterns.

50 fossilised wood slabs were photographed in high resolution to produce the Petrified Tree wood tiles, acquiring large-sized images to capture the finest details of the marble-like crystallisations and wood veins, leaving all their beauty intact. The bark was photographed to acquire detailed images of its fibrous nature and maintain all its colours and variations in shade. Full HD digital technology allowed all these unique particulars to be faithfully reproduced on slabs of fine porcelain stoneware.

Today, around the world petrified forests can be seen in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Egypt, Arizona and Asia.
