Petrified wood (from the Latin root petro meaning "rock" or "stone"; literally "wood turned into stone") is the name given to a special type of fossilised remains of terrestrial vegetation.
It is the result of a tree or tree-like plants having completely transitioned to stone by the process of per-mineralisation. All the organic materials have been replaced with minerals (such as quartz), while retaining the original structure of the stem tissue.
Unlike other types of fossils which are typically impressions or compressions, petrified wood is a three-dimensional representation of the original organic material.
Our fossils and minerals can be sent worldwide.
