Petrified Wood is a fossil in which the organic remains have been replaced by minerals in the slow process of turning to stone. This petrification process generally results in a Quartz Chaledony mineralization. Special rare conditions must be met for the fallen wood to be transformed into precious Fossil Wood or Petrified Wood. In general, the fallen trees get buried in an environment free of oxygen (anaerobic environment), which preserves the original tree structure and general appearance. The other conditions include a regular access to mineral rich water flowing through the wood, replacing the organic tree structure with inorganic stone. The result is Petrified Wood, a tree, with its original basic structure in place, replaced by stone. This process could occur in a span of more than one thousand years. Most petrified wood on earth can be from 50 to 500 million years old spanning from the Paleozoic Era (570-240 million years ago), the Mesozoic Era (240-64 million years ago) and even some in the Cenozoic Era (65 million-present).
Fossil Petrified Wood is found in many parts of the world, most commonly perceived to be from Arizona, US. Other significant places known for Petrified Wood include Madagascar, Brazil, and Indonesia. Madagascar produces, by far, the largest commercial quantity of brown petrified wood sold on the world market.
