Brazil Petrified Wood

Brazil Petrified Wood

Legend - Fossil wood replaced by Chalcedony.  Petrified wood comes from the Greek word petro meaning “stone”.  Petrification occurs underground when wood becomes buried under sediment - water flowing through the sediment deposits minerals replacing the structure of the tree that died millions of years earlier.

Properties - Petrified Wood is believed to be an extremely grounding and protecting 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.

Description - These Petrified Wood beads are mixes of translucent to opaque - in shades of brown and amber.    Sold as temporary strung 40cm (approx) strands.
