Mineral Description
 
healing crystals

The very best tumbled polished Arizona petrified wood. Arizona petrified wood is famous for its amazing spectrum of colors and patterns found in the wood. These are not the tiny 3/4 inch size everyone else sells.

These are also properly tumbled meaning they are tumbled just enough to create a polished finish without losing the original shapes and textures of each stone. So these WILL have some imperfections in the polished finish but that is what makes them unique and more interesting!

You will receive one specimen that is 1 1/2 inch to 2 1/2 inches and will be one of the colors you see in the photos. I will randomly pick one from the bin unless you add a note to your order.


Bulk Purchase Specimen

You are buying one rock. You will receive one rock like the ones in the photographs, not the exact rocks shown. Photographing and listing every crystal separately adds a lot in labor costs. We pass that savings on to you with lower prices and higher quality than the competition.

Petrified wood is the name given to a special type of fossilized remains of terrestrial vegetation. It is the result of a tree having turned completely into stone by the process of permineralization. All the organic materials have been replaced with minerals (mostly a silicate, such as quartz), while retaining the original structure of the wood. Petrified wood (from the Greek root petro meaning rock or stone; literally wood turned into stone). It is the result of a tree having turned completely into stone by the process of per mineralization. All the organic materials have been replaced with minerals (mostly a silicate, such as quartz), while retaining the original structure of the wood. In general, wood takes less than 100 years to petrify. The organic matter needs to become petrified before it decomposes completely. Native Americans had various beliefs about the origin of the petrified logs in what is now Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona. Natives of the Paiute tribe held that these giant petrifications were spent arrow shafts and spears dispatched by the Thunder God Shinauav and his enemies during a great battle. Members of the Navajo tribe believed they were the bones of the great giant monster Yeitso.

HEALING PROPERTIES
