Since my first smoking experience of a pipe out of fossilized wood I am curious about the high smoking quality. I started to make experiments about the humidity absorption and release, as well as about the thermal conductivity. After that I entrusted a chemist with analysis and was really surprised which minerals are within this wood.
2009 I was cooperating with the University of Vienna – Institution for wood research. I gave them different pieces of fossilized wood which they scrutinised on substance of content, concentration of Minerals and silicate as well as on humidity absorption.
At the same time the Institution for Radium research and nuclear physics of the University of Vienna made a survey on the exact age of the wood. The outcomes of the studies determined an age up to 4.355 years.
