Petrified Wood Tumble
Petrified Wood comes from the Greek root petro, which means rock or stone, with literal meaning ‘wood turned into stone’. Petrified Wood is the result of a tree turning into stone through the process of permineralization*.
Unlike other kinds of fossils that are compressions or impressions, Petrified Wood is a three-dimensional representation of the original organic material. The earth energies present in this stone will calm your nerves and ease your fears. It will fill you with feelings of security, stability, and well-being. Petrified Wood is an ideal stone for meditation because it will guide you in knowing what’s important and what’s not.
*All the organic materials of the tree have been replaced with silicate minerals, usually a quartz, while maintaining the wood’s original structure.
