Peanut wood is a variety of petrified wood, where the shape and structure of the wood is preserved when the original organic material is replaced by minerals. The mineral composition is chalcedony or jasper (i.e., silicon dioxide), and the petrified wood has the hardness and durability of quartz. Peanut wood is not actually from the peanut tree, since peanuts don't grow on trees. But the lighter colored sections of the petrified wood was thought to be the color of peanuts.

man their gems are pretty good, and the prices aren't to bad either, I like checking out hte gems on there website, beceause the pictures of the gems are taken pretty well, and you can see the table, and the facets.
I love gemselect and I have bought a fair amount from them. The only complaint I have is not being able to save gems. I have a lot of projects so i am in the market for a lot of different gems and it's so disappointing to have to delete them all just to purchase one or two that I have saved in my cart.
