Petrified Woods

SiO2 + Wood + Time


THe Grain of the Stone

Petrified Wood happens when silicates find their way into a tree's cells and harden there. Over time, the silicates can replace the tree's over all structure and the wood becomes stone. The color of the wood is dictated by the minerals available to tint or muddy the silicates that are filling the structure.
