Petrified wood is a fossil that forms when plant material is buried by sediment and protected from decay caused by oxygen and organisms. Then, groundwater rich in minerals flows through the sediment, replacing the original plant material with silica, calcite, pyrite, and sometimes other materials like opal. The result is a rock version of the original wood material that still shows the details of the bark, wood, and cell structures.
