Welcome To Fòssięl

Curated by Fossiel, our clientele is provided with a truly rare and immersive experience by transforming approximately 25 million-year-old trees, transposed with minerals, into one-of-a-kind furnishings. All of our raw materials are sustainably sourced from various extreme volcanic regions of the world, mostly from within the Asia-Pacific Ring of Fire. Thereafter, bespoke statement pieces are hand crafted by master stone masons. Formed by a love of our organic past, Fòssięl brings hyper-unique flavor and rare semi-precious materials in prehistoric fossilized wood to the interior design, landscape design, furniture & building materials industries. Our luxurious and decadent materials have never been brought to market in the styling and scales we offer to you, our most discerning clientele. Bring the natural allure of ancient fossilized wood into your home and discover something extraordinary, with Fossiel.

What is Petrified Wood?

Petrified Wood aka Fossil Wood (from the Latin root Petro meaning ‘rock’ or ‘stone’; literally ‘wood turned into stone’) is the name given to a special type of fossilized remains of terrestrial vegetation. Petrifaction is the result of a tree or tree-like plants having been replaced by stone via a mineralization process. The organic materials making up cell walls have been replicated with minerals (mostly silica in the form of opal, chalcedony, or quartz). In some instances, the original structure of the stem tissue may be partially retained. Unlike other plant fossils, which are typically impressions or compressions, petrified wood is a three-dimensional representation of the original organic material.
