  • Additional Information: Petrified wood consists of fossil wood in which all organic materials have been replaced with minerals while the structure of the wood is preserved. The fossilization process takes place underground, when a tree is buried under sediment, and can take millions of years. Even the smallest details such as tree rings and various tissue structures can be preserved in this way. Petrified wood has a hardness of 7 on the Mohs hardness scale, the same as quartz.
