Petrified Wood 46g
Petrified Wood comes from the Greek root petro, which means rock or stone, with literal meaning ‘wood turned into stone’.
It’s the name given to the fossilized remains of terrestrial vegetation.
Petrified Wood is the result of a tree turning into stone through the process of permineralization.
All the organic materials of the tree have been replaced with silicate minerals, usually a quartz, while maintaining the wood’s original structure.
Unlike other kinds of fossils that are compressions or impressions, Petrified Wood is a three-dimensional representation of the original organic material.
The petrifaction process happens underground, when wood starts to get covered by sediments. It’s preserved at first due to lack of oxygen.
Mineral-rich water that’s flowing through the sediments deposits minerals in the tree’s cells. As the tree’s lignin and cellulose start to decay, a stone mold also begins to form!
Wood takes approximately a hundred years to petrify.
Organic material needs to become petrified first before it completely decomposes.
