from wiki. In geology, petrifaction, petrification or silicification is the process by which organic material is converted into stone by impregnation with silica. It is a rare form of fossilization. Petrified wood is the most well known result of this process, but all organisms from bacteria to vertebrates can be petrified.

A major ingredient in the cell walls of wood is cellulose. Under certain conditions the silica binds to the cellulose; when it crystallizes, it preserves the microscopic structure of wood even after the cellulose is gone.
