#4 – Petrified Wood Sinks

Pezrok’s stunning petrified wood vessel sinks are sourced from Indonesia, where trees were buried millions of years ago in volcanic ash and lava. Over time, the wood fibers were replaced with silca-rich minerals such as chalcedony, quartz, calcite, opal and jasper. The beautiful colors in the wood come from these assorted trace elements.
