Petrified Wood has been thought to contain the knowledge from the tree that they were created from. It has also been believed to be a great stone to utilize during meditation and healing past-life traumas.

Petrified wood is a fossil. 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. The result is a fossil of the original woody material that often exhibits preserved details of the bark, wood, and cellular structures. The most famous locality for observing petrified wood is Petrified Forest National Park near the community of Holbrook in northeastern Arizona.
