Petrified Wood Bookends
Petrified wood is one of stones that I grab when I'm feeling emotionally wobbly and in need of significant stability. Petrified wood is one of those elemental chameleons that began as a member of the plant kingdom and then hopped over to the mineral kingdom. Often, the patterns left in the wood toddle off into the animal kingdom or behave in some other way as a "figure stone", which means that the patterns look like something. It is incredibly good for grounding high light energies, creating balance and stability, protection, care, and endurance.
This is a pretty hefty set of bookends. I love the color and the textural edge of bark. The design in the center looks like a camel to me. Or a giraffe. Hey, it's the end of the day and I'm seeing patterns in everything at this point. Nice earthy purples in these too.
This book ends measure approximately a) 7 3/4 X 5 3/4 X2" b) 7 1/2 X 5 3/4 X 2" and both ends together weigh 11.44 lbs.
