Fossil Peanut Wood was not really peanut wood; peanuts grow in the ground and not on a tree. It is called “peanut” wood because of the peanut-shape cream color inclusions. These “peanuts” used to be holes left behind by burrowing teredo mollusks. These holes filled with matter that, eventually, was replaced by chert when the wood fossilized.

This egg is a wonderful example of peanut wood. It has a strong contrast between the brown petrified wood and the cream color “peanuts”.
