Petrified wood forms when stems are buried in wet sediments saturated with dissolved minerals. The lack of oxygen slows decay and transforms the wood, allowing the replacing of the original plant material with silica, calcite, pyrite, or another inorganic material such as opal, to replace the plant cell walls and fill in void spaces in the wood, until it transforms into stone for all eternity. Pretty cool, huh?
Use it to connect to your past for self learning, for speaking to your ancestors and honoring your spiritual path and transformation into the crystalline self you came to Earth to be. Make a grid to honor the ancestors, use to aid during past life recalls, tap into it in meditation to discover ancient secrets hidden within.
Why We Love It:
Petrified Wood is the ultimate transformational stone. Use it when you want to bring in very strong Earth power to your manifestations or to transform yourself into something stronger. Its Earth Energy is also useful in Feng Shui projects to increase vitality and bring abundance to your space.
