Petrifaction

Petrification is the process of fossilizing of organic material. This petrification is caused by the process permineralization and diagenesis. As a result, the organic material is replaced over time by minerals. A good example of petrification is petrified wood. With permineralization the original cell structure is fossilized, with diagenesis the cell structure is lost.
