Petrified Wood trunk - 0601-0068
Petrified wood is literally wood turned into stone is the name given to a special type of fossilized remains of terrestrial vegetation. It is the result of a tree or tree-like plants having completely transitioned to stone by the process of permineralization. All the organic materials have been replaced with minerals such as quartz, while retaining the original structure of the stem tissue.
Unlike other types of fossils which are typically impressions or compressions, petrified wood is a three-dimensional representation of the original organic material. The petrifaction process occurs underground, when wood becomes buried under sediment or volcanic ash and is initially preserved due to a lack of oxygen which inhibits aerobic decomposition.
Rocks are used in nearly every Japanese garden. Some gardens feature rock as the main element, but most Japanese gardens use them in supporting roles as functional stones, pathways, edge stones, or landscape boulders. Japanese gardens generally use rock in subtle ways to evoke and mimick the qualities of the natural landscape. Japanese gardens also often feature large boulders that are sunk into berms and used for scenic effect. In ancient times rock setting was a very serious task.
