Agatized Petrified Wood - Architectural Minerals & Stone

With a name derived from “petro”, the Greek word for stone, petrified wood formed when deceased trees were quickly buried in sediments, where the oxygen-poor environment prevented the decay typically experienced by dead matter on the surface. Over time, minerals in the fluids passing through the sediments deposit in the plant’s cells, eventually replacing them completely and preserving the plant’s structure in the process.
