Pumtek etched bead Petrified Wood Bead fossil palm wood bone - Opalized Palmwood: Pumtek meaning “buried thunderbolt” are important heirloom beads among the Chin, who live in the Chin Hills of western Myanmar (formerly Burma). Pumtek beads are composed from fossil palmwood, that is a variety of non-precious opal (unlike many fossil woods that have become agatized). It is correct to say they are “fossil wood,” “fossil palmwood,” opalized wood,” and “petrified wood.”
