Petrified/fossilised Wood from India


Petrified/fossilised wood from India, reddish brown colour and weighs 5.3kg.

Petrified Wood has been around for millions of years, and it is a reminder that nothing in this world is permanent.

Petrified wood, also known as petrified tree (from Ancient Greek πέτρα meaning ‘rock’ or ‘stone’; literally ‘wood turned into stone’), is the name given to a special type of fossilized wood, the fossilized remains of terrestrial vegetation.

It forms when plant material is buried by sediment and protected from decay due to oxygen and organisms. Then, groundwater rich in dissolved solids flows through the sediment, replacing the original plant material with silica, calcite, pyrite, or another inorganic material such as opal.

In mythological times, Petrified Wood was believed to possess divine power. To this day, it stands as a symbol of man’s genuine connection to the natural world. This stone helps with mental longevity.

Petrified Wood can also be a symbol of strength and resilience. The fact that the wood has been able to withstand the test of time is a sign of its durability.

Just like the wood has remained strong over the years, we can learn to be resilient in the face of adversity. Petrified Wood is a reminder that no matter what life throws our way, we can always find a way to thrive.

This beauty of mother earth is 8″ Tall x 6.5″ Wide weighs 5.3kg.
