Petrified Wood is a Fossil of a (piece of) tree that originated because trees fell over and were covered under a layer of soil or sand. Often due to a natural disaster. The colors you see in Petrified Wood depend on the Minerals in the soil or sand. Each mineral creates its own color. The process of '' petrification '' ensures that all characteristics such as knots, bark and annual rings of the wood are preserved. A possibly. decaying process in a distant past can provide for wonderful crystal formation, often in multiple colors.
