Petrified Wood for Sale | Dinomite Rocks and Gems
The first thing to note about petrified wood is that it’s formed from something organic: an actual tree. That’s why these stones carry special meaning because they seem to embody both a sense of “permanence,” as well as “rebirth.”
When trees fall and are quickly covered by sediment, all of that mud, silt, and clay—or even volcanic ash—begins to starve the wood of oxygen. This works to slow down the tree’s natural decomposition process. And that gives the organic matter time to form a cavity which can then start to be filled with water. If the water has lots of dissolved minerals, we’ll eventually get something that’s technically both a fossil and a crystal—petrified wood!
These stones can be made from different combinations of minerals and crystals, including calcite, pyrite, or even opal. As a result, petrified wood is connected with different chakras. It just depends on a particular stone’s composition. Some pieces may resonate more with the root and sacral chakras, while other types of petrified wood might activate the third eye chakra. Nevertheless, it’s widely regarded as a grounding crystal.
Meditating with petrified wood can help you embrace patience and personal growth. Some people even find that petrified wood encourages past-life recall. This can allow you to heal traumas and move toward emotional freedom.
You might also turn to petrified wood when you feel the need to reconnect with your innate creativity and sensuality. Although the tree itself is gone, petrified wood can still carry on that strong vibration of a living, breathing being. This is probably its most unique aspect. Other fossils can have this same power about them, but there’s nothing quite like an ancient tree.
If you’re interested in cleansing your petrified wood, the process is basically the same as how you would handle your other crystals. You can leave your stone in direct sunlight on a nice day and occasionally shift and rotate it to absorb the sun’s rays from every angle. Or you could wait for a full moon and cleanse your stone at night. Just be sure to place your crystal outside after the sunsets. It’s best to not intermingle the sun’s and moon’s energies.
Learning a little more about petrified wood can help you trust your intuition when selecting a piece for your crystal collection. We hope you’ll be able to find one from us at Dinomite Rocks & Gems!
