Gary Green Jasper – Larsonite, also referred to as “petrified bog wood” is a form of petrified wood from a location near McDermitt Oregon, on the Nevada/Oregon border. It’s believed to be wood that was covered by volcanic activity between 11-15 million years ago. The volcanic event covered this area in debris that deprived the plants of oxygen, halting the decay process. Minerals from the volcanic ash then acted as the replacement material for this petrification/mineralization, giving the wood these vibrant colors.
It helps to connect with the energies of the Earth by keeping the vibrations of nature near. Meditation with Petrified wood may take you back to connect with a time when your Spirit was cradled by Nature. Petrified wood encourages people to respect and look after their environment, finding ways to live simply, in harmony with the Spirit of the planet.
