Petrified Wood was once an ancient, living, breathing tree that has fossilized over thousands of years. Petrified Wood forms over time, when a tree has died, then is replaced with minerals and silicon dioxide forms in place of the wood that degrades until there is no wood left, only Agate and sometimes Quartz, Jasper, or even opal.
Petrified wood has been around practically since time began. All of the markings and patterning in these petrified wood stones are from the original tree’s growth rings and knots. Eventually, all of the wood becomes replaced with Quartz Crystal, and the energies of the wood and quartz have become naturally merged.
A Petrified Wood Stone is an extremely healing, grounding and protecting stone. It calms your nerves and fears, filling you with feelings of wellbeing and security.
Petrified wood is stone of transformation and powerful in removing obstacles. Use it to assist in reaching goals that you are having trouble with or to smooth a path for any endeavor that you anticipate will be ridden with difficult barriers.
The petrified wood meaning is ideal for meditation, as it helps you to distinguish between what is important and what is not—helping you to stop focusing and worry about the little things.
Due to the way it is formed, Petrified Wood healing properties are all connected strongly with the energies of the Earth. These stones carry powerful wood and earth energies to help activate and cleanse the root chakra and third eye chakra. For anyone that lives in the city, placing Petrified Wood stones in your home is a wonderful way to bring the vibration of nature in your home. They are also said to be great stones for business success.
