Peanut wood started during the Cretaceous period as conifer trees on land in Western Australia that died and got carried by rivers across Australia as driftwood. A type of marine clam larvae smelled the wood and attached to eat to feast. As they developed, they chomped out tunnels throughout the mushy wood. Meanwhile, in the same river mouth location, billions of dead tiny silica shell covered plankton called radiolarians accumulated in layers of white sediment over the wood, settling into the worm holes. As the shells dissolved, the silica from the shells replaced the wood pulp turning the driftwood into fossils!
Peanut wood is usually dark brown to black in color with a white or cream egg-shaped pattern.
