Petrified wood is a fossilized form of ancient wood that has undergone a process called petrification, where organic materials are replaced by minerals over time. Petrified wood forms when fallen trees are buried in sediment and undergo a slow mineralization process. Over millions of years, minerals such as silica, quartz, and calcite replace the organic material, resulting in the preservation of the wood's cellular structure.
Metaphysically, petrified wood is believed to carry the energy and wisdom of the ancient trees. It is associated with grounding, stability, and strength, connecting one to the Earth's energy. Petrified wood is thought to enhance patience, perseverance, and resilience, helping individuals navigate through life's challenges. It is also believed to promote spiritual growth, connecting one to the natural world and the cycles of life. Petrified wood is often used for meditation, as it is said to provide a sense of calm, balance, and harmony. It is also used for its protective properties, creating a shield against negative energies.
