Petrified wood is the transformation of wood to stone by the process of per mineralization. Silicate material, usually Quartz, replaces the wood, keeping the wood structure. It takes about 100 years for wood to become petrified then the wood decays completely. Petrified wood is a stone of transformation, allowing you to become who you want to be; it helps you through hard, or uncertain times. It can be calming relieving fear, panic and anxiety and increases feelings of security, stability and well-being. It is great in mediation filtering out what isn’t important and helps you focus on what is. It helps one stop obsessing about what cannot be controlled. Petrified wood is grounding, aligning the root chakra and the third eye.
