These slabs of petrified wood are so wonderful, each polished beautifully while still allowing the natural texture of the original wood bark on the sides. They truly are little pieces of ancient history that you can hold in your hands!

These pieces of petrified wood are each around 4"-5" on their longest sides. A few are more square with slightly shorter longest sides, but each equal out to about .33 - .5 lbs. Each comes with their own acrylic stand, just like the one in the picture.

While each piece of petrified wood is unique, all are equally beautiful! You can trust us to intuitively choose the perfect piece for you!

History | Science

The process creating Petrified Wood, perimineralization, happens over thousands of years when a piece of wood just happens to fall into mineral-rich water, mud, or volcanic ash. While most wood will decompose, the lack of oxygen in these environments slows down natural decomposition. The wood then undergoes the transformation of minerals seeping into the porous wood and replacing organic material as it breaks down over time.
As each tree is unique and the exact minerals available in the spot where it falls are unique, as well, each piece of petrified wood is a one-of-a-kind piece of art, as well as a beautiful piece of ancient history.
Petrified Wood can be found all over the world, and these particular pieces were found in Madagascar.

Metaphysical Properties

Petrified wood has a soothing and calm energy that helps firmly root us in reality. It teaches patience and wisdom in transformation, bringing peace and serenity.
Even moreso than other fossils, Petrified Wood is a source of patient wisdom, as well. Trees have a longer lifespan than other living creatures, gathering rings every year. Between the rings of petrified wood, you can find all the wisdom of a long life as well as that of the thousands to millions of transformative years becoming the stone it is today.



Although we always strive to provide clear, accurate images of our crystals and other products, we photograph under professional lighting, which is meant to mimic sunlight. If you get your crystal and think it looks a little different under low or artificial light, try checking it out again in sunlight!

Our crystals are one-of-a-kind art, created by nature.

No two pieces are the same, and there is no such thing as "perfection" in nature.

When it comes to our hand-carved items, remember that artists work with and around imperfections, druzy pockets, and other natural variations to bring each carving out of a piece of natural stone.

We consider these imperfections to be one of the most wonderful parts of crystal collecting, and we invite you to embrace each carving's uniqueness!

We will always try to portray each piece honestly, so be sure to look closely at our images and videos to ensure you know what to expect.
