This bit of Peanut wood began its life as a conifer tree on land in the area now known as Western Australia. When these trees died, rivers carried them into a shallow, salty epicontinental sea that covered much of what is now the Australian continent.

They arrived at the sea as a piece of driftwood. This was during the Cretaceous time period, when a species of marine clam that loved to eat wood lived in the Australian sea. The clam larvae were able to smell nearby wood and swim to it. When they arrived at a piece of driftwood, once their carnage was done and the wood has a chance to prettified, we are left with this stunning markings in stone. 

Can be used as a show stopping cheese board or platter to have your botanical candles display in their mystic array.
