Petirifed Wood is a stone with organic origins that formed millions of years ago, with pieces dating as far back as the dinosaurs. The word ‘petrified’ comes from the Greek word ‘petro’ which means rock, or stone. While many pieces may look identical to wood, there is no organic material left. This process, known as silicification, happens over millions of years, where the organic material is replaced with minerals, typically agate, jasper, and opal. This would typically happen when trees naturally feel and were submerged in bog like conditions. Petrified Wood comes from only a few places around the world, including areas of Australia, Argentina, and United States of America. This stone both has many names, such as Agatised Wood, or Silicified Wood, but it also comes in many colours, ranging from brown, to midnight blue.
