More Information on the Healing Properties of Petrified Wood:
Petrified Wood is created when minerals replace the organic molecules in the plant material. This stone is incredibly grounding and works to enhance stability, both physical and emotional. It also creates more stability in your life from things like your career and home life to your spiritual practice and connection with nature. Petrified Wood embodies the energy of the Oak Moon and calls forth the energy of this mighty tree to lend its strength in times of need.
Petrified Wood has a special connection to the Beaver animal archetype. It represents the persistence needed to overcome obstacles blocking your path. This stone helps you accomplish what you set your mind to by encouraging you to take things one step at a time as well as helps you be industrious when things don’t go as planned. Work with Petrified Wood when you must undertake a daunting task to help keep you motivated and on track throughout the process.
