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.

I found a beautiful rose quartz stone in the right size for the right price.
Gemselect is o.k the prices are pretty good, but the shipping prices really suck, one time I order from them and order got lost or never came, but they were good about fixing the problem and rectifying the situation, the stones and good, and the ones that come in the mail, look just as pictured on the website, or all it's not bad and its were I go to get my stones.
It was super easy to browse all the gemstones and find exactly what you wanted. The prices were great and the checkout process was smooth. Seems like a great site, will definitely come back to find more in the future.
