History and Uses
Petrified Wood has been used to help connect with the energies of Earth and Wood. It is helpful for those who live in a concrete jungle and whose spirit feels disconnected from Nature. It encourages respect for the natural world and enhances harmony.
Petrified Wood has a fascinating history that dates back millions of years. It begins with fallen trees, ancient forests, or plant materials that were buried by sediment during natural disasters, such as volcanic eruptions or floods. Over time, the organic material undergoes a unique preservation process known as mineralization.
During mineralization, groundwater seeps through the buried wood, carrying dissolved minerals like silica, iron, and manganese. These minerals gradually replace the organic cells of the wood, transforming it into stone while maintaining its original structure. The process can take thousands of years, resulting in the mesmerizing and intricate patterns seen in Petrified Wood today.
Amazing specimens have been found in Holbrook, Arizona as well as in Egypt, Australia, Brazil and Argentina.
I evolve steadily, drawing from my soul’s history with strength and patience.
