Petrified wood is made up of almost solid quartz. The colors are produced by impurities in the quartz, such as iron, carbon and manganese. All the organic materials have been replaced completely by minerals, including silica dissolved from volcanic ash, absorbed into the porous wood over thousands of years crystallized within the cellular structure.
