Petrified Wood (also known as fossilized wood or agatized wood) is a member of the Quartz family, a silicon dioxide mineral with a hardness of 6.5 to 7. Its crystal system is hexagonal (trigonal). Contrary to popular belief, the wood has not actually become stone. Only the form of the wood remains. The organic wood substance has been replaced by silicon dioxide. If wood, after death is quickly covered with fine-grained sedimentary rock, this allows for petrification, which preserves a large proportion of the original form of the wood. Growth rings, outer bark and even worm holes in the wood can be preserved during this process. Most Petrified Wood is brown or gray but can come in interesting colors as well, and can be found in Arizona, Egypt, Brazil, and Argentina among others. It is a stone of patience and steady growth towards the goal of spiritual transformation.

Sourced from Madagascar.
