Petrified wood.

Petrified wood, is a sort of fossil: it consists of fossil wood, in which all organic materials are replaced by minerals (usually silicates, such as quartz), 
with maintenance of the structure of the wood. The process of turning into stone is happening under the ground, when a tree becomes buried under sediment, 
and can take millions of years. Groundwater that seeps slowly through the soil, turn minerals where the lignin and cellulose rot. If the deposition and rot as quickly, 
the form of the cells. The smallest details can be immortalized.  Fossilized annual rings and different tissues can be traced to a microscopic level. 
Petrified wood has a hardness of 7 on the  Mohs hardness scale, the same as quartz. The process of turning into stone is now in a laboratory minimized until a few days.
Petrified wood has a wide spectrum of colors by variation in the deposits of minerals as manganese, iron and copper. Quartz is colorless, but when iron is added, 
crystals with a red or yellow haze occur.
