Petrified wood, which is also known as a petrified tree, is derived from an ancient Greek word meaning ‘rock’ or ‘stone.’ The literal meaning of petrified wood is, ‘wood turned into stone.’ Petrified wood is a type of fossilized wood with the fossilized remains of terrestrial vegetation. Petrified wood crystal is an organic material created when minerals replace the original wood tissue over time. This mineral replacement process of Petrified wood happens when Adam's ale flows through cracks inside rocks, thus depositing mineral crystals on the surface of the wood. Due to this, tree knots, rings, and other features are preserved while the organic matter decays away. It must be noted that petrified wood is a category of fossil. And the original plant material is replaced with calcite, silica, pyrite, or other inorganic materials like opal when water rich in these dissolved materials flows through the sediment at the place where the plant material is buried.
Petrified wood crystals contain a unique composition of minerals depending on the location where they are found and the environment they are exposed to. Its color can range from brown to blue due to the mineral composition present in it. The beautiful look of petrified wood results from its visually striking ancient appearance. The best location in case you wish to see natural deposits of petrified wood at scale is the Petrified Forest National Park near the community of Holbrook in north-eastern Arizona. It is said that about 225 years ago, this area used to be a lowland covered by a dense forest.
Petrified wood is a peculiar geological phenomenon that has existed since the ancient ages. In modern times, petrified wood is desired for its beauty and toughness. It is often used in artworks and furniture pieces (as decorative items) and can also be used to make petrified wood jewelry. Apart from jewelry, it can be used for making tabletops, bookends, and clock faces. It can also be cut in cabochons to make other home décor items and crafts. One can also place small pieces of petrified wood in a rock tumbler to make tumbled stones.
It must be noted that only a small portion of petrified wood is suitable for lapidary work. Poorly preserved specimens with closely spaced fractures or lots of voids do not polish well and break while being worked upon. The specimens with a spectacular color with no fractures or voids are desired for lapidary work.
Some specimens of petrified wood are preserved so properly that people cannot believe that they are fossils until they are shocked by the weight of petrified wood. These specimens that have almost perfect preservation are unusual, but these specimens do show clearly recognizable bark and woody structure.
Petrified wood is believed to be the birthstone of the people born under the Taurus sign. This crystal’s earthy and warm hue resonates with the Taurean’s desire for security and stability. It also helps in having a strong and healthy connection to nature. During the astrological transits, it is said that wearing the petrified wood stone as a talisman or amulet will bring you extra luck in money-related matters. The metaphysical properties of petrified wood are not limited to its zodiac sign. It is said to aid in emotional healing and protection from people with negative vibes, such as the ones who bully others for no reason. It is also said to enhance the communication skills of the wearer, increasing his overall self-confidence. It is said that this stone withholds both uplifting and grounding energies, which can assist a person in connecting with the spirit realm while staying grounded in the physical world.
The chakra associated with petrified wood is the ‘Muladhara’ (the Sanskrit name for root chakra). It helps its wearer connect with nature. The root chakra helps us ground ourselves with the physical dimension, and it is associated with fear, which is why it is said to govern survival instincts. Petrified wood greatly helps in aligning this chakra so that it may function properly. Petrified wood works quite well with other stones, as well. For instance, if you are battling compulsiveness, you can wear petrified wood jewelry with peridot. You can pair petrified wood jewelry with phenacite, moss agate, and rose quartz if you suffer from immune disorders. If you want to protect your bones, pair petrified wood crystal with phenacite.
Petrified wood can be charged in many ways very easily. You can place your piece of petrified wood jewelry in direct sunlight or moonlight for several hours. Or you can bury it in the earth for a few hours. If you believe in smudging, you can smudge your piece of petrified wood jewelry with sage or Palo Santo. If you wish to clean your piece of petrified wood jewelry, rinse it under water and dry it with a cloth. Never use soap or any other cleaning material like detergents for cleaning your piece of petrified wood jewelry. Soap or detergents should not be used since they end up damaging the wood in your petrified wood jewelry.
