Petrified wood usually dates from the late Triassic (193 million years ago) and the original plant material has been completely replaced by minerals. This process which, cell by cell proceeds very slowly is known as petrification. Whole forests have been found preserved in this way in Wyoming and Arizona in the U.S.A.
