Also known as Agatized or Fossilized Wood, Petrified wood in all actuality is Quartz and possesses some wonderful healing energies. Once rooted deep within the earth, these crystalline structures have a strong Gaia connection plus grounding and ancestral healing energies. Additional attributes that I have felt from working with these crystals is a fortified strength and a type of wisdom that can only come from something that was and is so deeply connected to the Earth. This peaceful stone is especially good to work with when you have inner turbulence and need to regain or re-establish some inner peace and balance.
Since my dad was a rockhound, Petrified wood was plentiful in my dads rock collection. He collected them from the many trips he made to Canada, Montana, Washington, Idaho and Oregon. A couple of my favorites are the Agatized Limb Cast that is a translucent milky green color and a near black one that has a bit of druzy in it. Honestly I love all Petrified Wood but those are just my favorites because they’re not the typical pieces that you see.
The history these beautiful gems hold and are willing to share with anyone that is called to work with them is genuinely something to behold. To establish a deeper connection with these crystalline structures, sit with them in quiet meditation and ask what type of earthly wisdom they want to share with you. Be sure to take in the grounding strength they have to offer, and allow their Gaian energies to envelope you in a warm loving motherly hug.
