Need something to keep your books standing tall on your shelf? Look no further than a set of gorgeous and unique petrified wood bookends. If you drooled over crystal bookends, know that petrified wood bookends are simply the next step in your quest to bring the outdoors to your indoor space.
For those who might not know what exactly petrified wood is, the simple answer is that it’s a fossil. When plant material is protected from natural decay through any number of naturally occurring processes, a mineralization process keeps the material from decomposing. It hardens and becomes replaced by stone. The stones may vary, offering a wide range of colors and patterns when petrified.
Find below an array of awesome petrified wood bookends that will help keep your bookshelves neat and tidy. Of course, if you find yourself without room on your shelves for book ends, you might first need to get a shelf to store your bookends.
Because these are fossils and therefore not easy to replicate, many of these are one-of-a-kind, and some of them can be real investments. But talk about statement pieces!
