Petrified wood is absolutely incredible to look at, also known as crystallised or fossalized wood, it does not actually contain wood that has become stone, instead it is the imprint of the wood that has been left and replaced by silicon dioxide. Robert Simmons writes that 'if wood after death, is quickly covered with fine grain sedimentary rock this allows for petrification, which preserves a large proportion of the original form of the wood'.
Petrified wood holds the virtue of patience, it is very connected to the Earth Star chakra. Through this blessed stone we can come to the wisdom of our Soul. We see the cycle of events, past and future and know that how we live, the actions we take will determine our next life & that this choice is ours to make. Lay a large piece of this stone beneath the feet of your client and it will draw them deep into their ability to stand tall in this world and ground their lightbody into the very fabric of this earth plane. Is excellent for meditation to triangulate your energy, allowing it to ground deeply into your DNA.
