Science & Origin of Petrified Wood
Petrified Wood, which is technically a fossil and a crystal, comes from the trunks and branches of ancient wood. These fossilized specimens have had their chemical body replaced by another mineral over time. This occurred during the Mesozoic Era and Paleozoic Era 250-66 million years ago. The minerals that replace the physical wood are often Agates or Chalcedony/Quartz, but can rarely be found opalized. The colors on each piece can range greatly with deep reds, browns, blues, and even yellows developing throughout the interior body.
Meaning & Energy
With Petrified Wood comes ancient knowledge and immense ancestral history. Through fossilization, an abundance of ancient earthen energy has been contained within; allowing for the proper practitioner to channel and direct this elestial energy. The vibrations that flow from this wooden amulet provide the essential nutrients for growth and rejuvenation while also unlocking a pathway to our past lives. Through past-life recall, we are able to learn from previous lessons and look towards old wounds to heal. Some scars carry over through physical lives as their wounds may appear eternal. Only through the relieving and release of this past trauma will you be able to free yourself emotionally and move forward. Deep meditation and third eye practices are just a few exercises you can practice to help identify these traumatic experiences. Visiting an experienced Reiki Master or Past Life Healer may be beneficial for you especially if you are experiencing deep blockages that you are unable to move past.

♥ Good fortune ♥ Stability ♥ Security ♥ Strength ♥ Longevity ♥ Grounding ♥ Calmness ♥ Wisdom
Petrified Wood is a stone of transformation. It assists one to advance to ones highest chosen level. Helps to make one feel safe and secure, calming down survival based fears. Petrified Wood assists in setting a pace and staying with that pace all day long. It is useful for bringing patience to those in a process of slow inner transformation, and for bringing that change to fruition. Petrified Wood strengthens one’s backbone, physically and in terms of self-will. It is beneficial to the skeletal system, skin and hair.
We have found the energies that Petrified Wood emanate resonate at a much higher frequency when being channeled outside (especially during the hours of dawn or dusk). The sounds of living beings around you can be picked up and enhanced into total life force energy. Much like ancient civilizations, we can use sound and frequencies as a healer, releasing total control to the vibrational energy. Petrified Wood promotes an energetic cleanse and transfer of grounding energy to our physical bodies so that the Earth may heal us once more.
