Petrified wood is a fossil that is formed when trees or other plant material get buried by layers of sediment, mud, ash from volcanoes, or other material. Once buried, the muck on top deprives the wood of oxygen and organisms. Water, rich in dissolved solids, then flows through the sediment and replaces the original plant material with silica, calcite, pyrite, or other inorganic material such as opal.

Etruscans, ancient ancestors of Italy, used petrified wood to create handmade religious objects.

Said to soothe emotions, generate calmness, and dispel stress. It is believed when petrified wood is near, all your fears will simply disappear and you will be filled with feelings of security. It can assist anyone who is feeling stuck or experiencing the feeling of being frozen in time. It helps to create balance and offers a foundation from which to launch new goals or undertake a different path.

Care information

Most gemstones can be cleaned with water and mild detergent. Use a soft cloth or soft brush such as a baby brush or toothbrush with soft bristles to scrub them if necessary. Avoid scrubbing too hard and scratching the stone. Rinse and dry the stone with a soft, lint-free cloth. To add shine we suggest using a food grade silicone spray and buffing with a lint free cloth.

All of our gems and crystals are natural stone and may therefore have imperfections, blemishes, and variations. Please examine the product pictures carefully before making your purchase.
