Geological Discovery: Petrified Wood Containing Turquoise Opal Found In Australia, Queensland
When you think about it if a person from the past were to see such an object with their own hands, how could they not believe that it was the result of magic? Even nowadays there are less informed people that would assume so too.
This petrified wood has been discovered underneath volcanic ashfall and according to experts this ash buried the plants around and protected them from insects and decay.
The ash also turned into dissolved silica with time which made the wood look so shiny and out of this world.
