Literally wood turned into stone! Petrified Wood was once an ancient, living, breathing tree. It was buried and fossilized, over a long period of time, and the organic parts of its structure were replaced by minerals. It is an extremely grounding and protective stone. It is said to calm the nerves and fears and to encourage feelings of well-being, safety and security. It is a good stone for meditation and for helping you to distinguish between what is important and what is not, enabling you to stop worrying about the ‘small stuff’.
