How wood petrifys involves wood decaying in a hot silica rich environment. The wood will decompose and all of the molecules that make up the piece of wood gets replaced by silica. After this process is completed and finished the color of the wood then changes and the wood becomes very hard, harder than it was in the beginning.
Petrified wood sometimes can be mistaken for a beautiful rock or stone. This candle holder would make a gorgeous cednter piece on a table, and a beautiful gift to anyone, even oneself!
