Polished Petrified Wood
Did you know that petrified wood is a member of the quartz family as a silicon dioxide? It’s technically a pseudomorphosis of chalcedony. Petrified wood is formed when a freshly downed tree is covered in fine-grained sedimentary rock which prevents oxygen from decaying the tree. Silica from the sediment starts to fill the voids of the trees Over millions of years, these minerals crystallize within the wood's cellular structure forming the silicon dioxide material known as petrified wood. The wood, no longer wood at this point, takes on the hues of the minerals that fill its pores.
Slow and steady are the keywords for petrified wood, just like the petrification process. Like a tree, petrified wood encourages a strong body, patience, and inner peace. It’s also attributed to past life recall which totally relates to a petrified tree’s past life.
Metaphysical: Petrified wood carries the high vibrations of quartz and stimulates all the chakras from the root to the crown. It promotes grounding and mental clarity, enhanced awareness, psychic abilities, and is overall very cleansing to the spirit.
