In ancient times, Petrified Wood was believed to possess divine power. Today, it stands as a symbol of our connection to the natural world. It was once an ancient, living, breathing tree that has fossilized over thousands of years. It’s a piece of the past, frozen in time to connect to the modern world. For those of us who love nature but live in the modern city, Petrified Wood helps keep the vibration of nature close by.
Petrified Wood comes from the trunks and branches of ancient wood that has turned into stone. The petrification process is amazing.
It takes place underground when wood is covered by sediment and becomes preserved; mineral-rich water flowing through the sediment deposits minerals into the tree's cells; as the tree wood decays, a stone 'mold' from the minerals forms resulting in petrified wood. Wood can take hundreds of years to petrify and turn to stone!
