Story & How To Use:

Petrified Wood is not a crystal, but actually a fossil! It's believed to be around 200 million years old. Through stages of crystallization, quartz replaced most of the wood. Sometimes you will see other colors in petrified wood such as: red, purple, black, and green. This is due to trace minerals in the quartz such as: iron, manganese, carbon, and chromium.

To release stagnant or stuck energy in the body, hold onto a petrified wood in one hand during a meditation and repeat "release" with every breath. Watch as the energy is released in that area of your body to feel more whole and light.
