Petrified wood is a calming stone which can ease the burden of worrying about things that are actually not that important. It can also assist with the acceptance of aspects of life which cannot be changed. It's associated with everything that's old whether that be a building, a person, an animal or possessions. It's believed to bring about regeneration by de-energising the old and re-activating the new.
"petrified wood is a stone for archaeologists, historians and librarians which is reputed to counteract ageism in the workplace and to help others recognise the wisdom and value of old age"
