Petrified Wood (also called fossilized wood or agatized wood) is a member of the Quartz family, a silicon dioxide mineral with a hardness of 6.5 to 7. Its crystal system is hexagonal (trigonal). Contrary to popular belief, the wood has not actually become stone. Only the form of the wood remains-the organic wood substance has been replaced by silicon dioxide. Experts refer to this as “pseudomorphosis of Chalcedony (or Jasper or Opal) after wood”. If wood, after death, is quickly covered with fine-grained sedimentary rock, this allows for petrification, which preserves a large proportion of the original form of the wood.
