Petrified wood gets its name from the greek root Petro meaning “rock” or “stone; literally it is wood turned into stone. Petrified wood is the result of tree-like plants having completely transitioned to stone by the process of permineralization. All the organic materials get replaced with minerals mostly a silicate, such as quartz while retaining the original structure of the tree/wood. Unlike other types of fossils which are typically impressions, petrified wood is a three-dimensional impression of the original material. It is an extremely grounding and protective stone. Petrified wood is said to be the stone of business success.
