Petrified wood occurs when wood is fossilized and turned into stone. Because it is from the earth and was once organic material, petrified wood is known for its strong grounding properties and calming energies. The beautiful colors that you see in this stone are made by the different minerals that have replaced the woods structure. The petrified wood mined in Madagascar is said to have been deposited over 200 million years ago!
