The Story of Petrified Wood
Millions of years ago, when dinosaurs roamed the earth, enormous tropical forests and huge bodies of water spread across the lands that are dry today. A climatic change dried the waters, leaving behind dying trees, skeletons of trees and large stumps. Dissolved in the water was silicon oxide, a mineral that can be sand, quartz crystal, agate, chalcedony or opal. This mineral replaced the woody part of the giant trees, turning them into stone.
