This spell will attempt to turn the target into stone.  As the spell
is cast on a target, the target will become more and more petrified.
As a result of this, their effectiveness in fighting will be
diminished.  Also, each attempt at petrification is extremely
painful, and results in substantial damage.

Over time, the target will become less and less petrified, slowly
regaining their fighting abilities.  The rate of recovery is directly
related to the constitution of the partially paralyzed individual.

Petrify gains a bonus equal to the Wu-jen's earth sphere level times three.

Petrify can be safely used on your own golem to heal it!
