Petrified bogwood is a snapshot in time of the algae, fallen trees, vegetation, swamp critters and other swampy things that were happening when this bog was covered by falling ash. Known by various names such as Gary GreenvJasper, Larsonite or McDermitt Green Jasper is a petrified bogwood or swamp bog, where the wood, canes and cattails and creatures living in the bog were all petrified in a Miocene age volcanic event between 11 million and 14 million years ago. Isn't nature incredible?! Finished with a double band and oxidized for a darker finish. Natural stone handcut by lapidary artist in the USA. 

Electroformed in copper for 24+ hours. Size 7.25

I am no longer sealing pieces unless specified, due to multiple reasons including the health benefits of copper. I would only recommend sealing if pH level reacts and please note that the seal will eventually wear away but clear nail polish can also be used as an alternative method, especially if prefer to receive piece in a timely manner (with upcoming holiday) as sealant takes 6 days to properly cure. The healing properties of copper are an enzymatic chemical reaction positively involving the body’s own chemistry. For this to happen, copper must come into contact with the body’s skin oils and acids; the micro-nutrient properties of copper enter the bloodstream through the skin as a copper salt, resulting from a mix of body oils and acids, and the chelated copper picked up from the copper source. People who are deficient in copper may benefit from wearing copper jewelry, since it can be absorbed through the skin. Jewelry is a good way of taking in the small amount of the mineral needed. The healing properties of copper, in the form of bracelets, necklaces, rings, or earrings, can allow a minimal amount of the mineral into the body without overwhelming it. Some wearers of copper jewelry find it relieves the symptoms of arthritis and circulation problems.
