Description
Wood Opalite is a form of petrified wood. It is also called fossilized wood or agatized wood. It is a member of quartz family.The name petrified wood comes from the Greek word petro meaning rock or stone; literally ?wood turned into stone?.The petrified wood is a result of a tree having turned completely into a stone by the process of permineralization. The process of permineralization takes over 100 years. During this process all the organic parts have been replaced by minerals such as silicate or quartz, but they still manage to keep the structure of the wood. This process happens when wood gets buried underground. The lack of oxygen stops the organic matter from decomposition. When the water which is rich in minerals goes through these organic parts, it causes the decay of the plant, deposits the minerals that are in the water and they create a stone in its place.
