    You may but it for him..but one thing you should keep noticed that the gemstones are much sensitive and doesn't suit everyone. The gemstones are worn according to birth date etc. So, take an advice from an astrologer first..he will guide you a right way..

    I am confused - are we talking about petrified wood, or a type of jasper? Aren't these two separate things? Does the chemical transformation create jasper out of petrified wood? \nThank you~
