Fossils is organic material is converted into a fossil through the replacement of the original material and the filling of the original pore spaces with minerals. Petrified wood is a common result of this process, but all organisms, from bacteria to vertebrates, can be petrified. Petrification takes place through a combination of two similar processes: permineralization and replacement. These processes create replicas of the original specimen that are similar down to the microscopic level, and require a minimum of about 10,000 years to take place. Not only are the fossils produced through the process of petrification used for paleontological study, but they have also been used as both decorative and jewellry pieces. Especially shell and coral fossils is used in jewellry.

Fossil stones remind us of our past and helps us to accept who we are. It also have a positive effect in business.

Nipomo is a census-designated place (CDP) in San Luis Obispo County, California, United States. The original settlers of Nipomo were the Chumash Indians, who have lived in the area for over 9,000 years. Rancho Nipomo (the Indian word ne-po-mah meant "foot of the hill") was one of the first and largest of the Mexican land grants in San Luis Obispo County.
