Rock Type: Petrified Wood is a fossil, a remnant or impression of an organism which lived in the past. Fossils come in many different forms and, depending on what is being preserved, the fossilization process can also be very different. In the case of Petrified Wood, the wood is completely replaced by minerals. In fact, the mineralization process can be so exacting that it literally replaces the wood with minerals on a cell by cell basis. As a result the detail of the original organism is preserved exactly.   

Formation: Petrified wood is the fossilized remains of ancient trees which flourished millions of years ago. Typically when a tree dies, it decomposes relatively quickly, leaving no trace behind. But occasionally, a tree may fall into a river or be swept away in a flood. When this happens there is a chance that the tree may be quickly covered with fine-grained sedimentary materials, such as clay or ash. As the wood decomposes, its outer structure is preserved and replaced by various silica minerals found in the sediment, including Jasper, Chalcedony, and less frequently, Opal. These crystals create the rainbow of colors found in petrified wood. While any tree can potentially be fossilized, most Petrified Woods are a type of conifer tree, similar to modern Pine, Fir, and Redwood trees.

Mining: Typically mined from the primary deposits which still have their original relationship with the host rock. In some locations, whole logs and even entire trees may be found.

History of Petrified Wood

Petrified Wood is found in locations worldwide and has many myths associated with it. One of the most interesting myths belongs to the Apache Tribe in the American Southwest. This region is home to Petrified Forest National Park, the largest deposit of petrified wood in the world.

Coyote the TricksterAccording to legend, in the beginning days wood did not burn and so the People had to live in the cold and eat their food raw. One day the trickster god, Coyote, decided it was time for a change. He tied a torch to his tail and began to run all over the world, deliberately lighting forests on fire! All over the world, trees burst into flames. Because while they may have been immune to “normal fire,” this was “trickster fire,” a divine element far more potent and powerful! Coyote’s tail swung back and forth, touching trees as he ran. Not wanting to light the entire world on fire, he kept his tail from touching rocks. As a result of this wild run, trees are now flammable while rocks remain impervious to flames.

Of course, Coyote missed a few trees along the way, and sometimes even whole forests. Since these ancient trees weren’t touched by divine fire, they remain fire-proof to this day.

Healing Properties of Petrified Wood

Spiritual: Petrified Wood is a wonderful stone for grounding and transformation in every aspect of our lives. It gently nudges us into alignment, with our feet firmly planted on the good Earth and our heads held high to the sky. Petrified Wood is particularly good for people with natural gifts in Earth magic/medicine or anyone who wants to deepen their connection to the natural world. It also makes an excellent talisman for past-life healing and recall, as well as for deepening our ancestral connections. Petrified Wood is attuned to the Root and Third Eye Chakras and linked to the astrological sign of Leo. It is connected to the elements of Earth and vibrates to the number 77.

Emotional: Petrified Wood has a very soothing and calm energy. It dissolves false images and emotional fears, and helps us get firmly rooted back in reality. Petrified Wood teaches us patience, and that slow and steady growth will often serve us best. Rather than struggling to change, it encourages us to find the flow that matches our natural strengths so that change is relatively easy. It reminds us that transformation is rarely instantaneous, but if we trust ourselves and take baby steps, change will happen. During times of stress or depression, Petrified Wood helps us focus on what is most important and to find that quiet place of peace and serenity that resides deep within us.

Mental: Petrified Wood reminds us to keep it simple. It encourages us to take time to relax and just be in the moment. Petrified Wood is particularly useful for examining long-held belief systems and patterns. It helps us determine whether these beliefs and patterns still serve us, and if not, then it assists us in gently releasing them. Petrified Wood helps us to “stop sweating the small stuff” and focus our attention on the things that are within our power and worth our time to positively influence.

Physical: Petrified Wood is believed to be one of the very best stones for stabilizing health. It is said to help soothe nerves and stimulate the metabolism. It is also believed to help cleanse and balance the liver and gallbladder. It is most often used by metaphysical healers to strengthen the back and provide alignment for the skeletal system.

Always use wisdom when considering crystal therapies for healing.

Sourcing Relationship

I first met the owner of the Hong Kong tumbling company at the 2014 Tucson Gem and Mineral Show.  A language barrier coupled with the quick pace of the gem show, makes it difficult to discuss sensitive or complicated topics.  Every year I speak with the owner, often asking questions about the same stones, but getting slightly different answers.  The communication problem makes me highly selective about which stones I will buy from her.  If the stone is from mainland China, and I can independently determine its likely mining origin, I will buy it since short supply chains are important.  If a stone is from another country, I am more cautious.

Safe Handling of Petrified Wood

    Thanks for the tea. Love the stone. I held it in my hand long time, like little girl holding onto mama’s hand. She the mama of all of us.

  2. Michael A. (Rhode Island)

    I’ve had PHENOMENAL experiences with some other pieces I purchased from you… it’s clear they are all well sourced and well loved 🙂

  3. Marie C. (Missouri)

    My last order has helped to keep me grounded. I don’t think I ever told you how beautiful those stones are! Thank you so, so much

  4. Michael A. (Rhode Island)

    I bought two and both were of good size and excellent quality. Communication with this seller is wonderful also… she clearly loves what she does for a living! Highly recommend this seller 🙂

  5. Jennifer S. (Colorado)

    The pink petrified wood is a really neat surprise! The patterns are nice and the color is different and quite pretty!

  6. Beth S. (Kentucky)

    This Pink Petrified Wood is even more beautiful than in the photo. Its rich yet soft rose color is crossed by fascinating wood grain patterns, some translucent, some deeper crimson or reddish and there are even what look like a few tiny wood knots among the lines. What a wonderful combination of earthy-woody and gemlike pink, wood and heart. I don’t usually name my stones, but maybe this one is Heartwood.
