Grounding, Strength, Inner Peace

Petrified Wood is a stone of patience as it encourages slow, steady growth towards one’s goals.  It reminds us to not push things, but to allow them to unfold on its own time. It is a stone of roots, beginnings and ancient knowledge.  It is a member of the Quartz family and is also called fossilized wood or agatized wood. The earth energies present in this stone will calm your nerves and ease your fears.

Petrified Wood is the result of a tree turning into stone through the process of permineralization.  All the organic materials of the tree have been replaced with silicate minerals, usually a quartz, while maintaining the wood’s original structure.  Unlike other kinds of fossils that are compressions or impressions, Petrified Wood is a three-dimensional representation of the original organic material.
