This new type of ceramic could be made from natural biological material, which is cheap and renewable and easy to form.As explained in their article the process involved soaking wood in acid infused with either titanium or silicon and baked in an argon filled furnace. The original cellulose structure of the wood acts as a template.
PETRIFIED WOOD Battelle Memorial Institute in Columbus Ohio is a world class research and development company.In July of 2005 they announced through their internal Battelle World magazine that they had available for licensing a process to make a form of petrified wood.The ceramic silicon carbide or tungsten carbide take up permanent residence with the carbon remaining in the cellulose.Because the new ceramic duplicates the crystalline form of the wood the new material maintains microstructure and macrostructure.However it does not add support to the dogma that it takes millions of years to form a fossil.

In fact it adds credence to the belief that in nature it can happen quite quickly. Accompanying the Battelle article is an electron microscope photo with an electron microscopic image showing a cross section of wood that was artifically petrified in days.
