Additional Information: Brain Coral refers to corals that have a spheroid shape and groves which looks like a brain. This type of corral grows in shallow warm water coral reefs. Fossil Brain Coral is from the Pleistocene era and is technically a rock. Since the beginning of the 1st millennium, coral has been highly prized as a gem because it was believed to have mysterious, powerful and sacred properties. This particular piece of Fossil Brain Coral is black with grayish brain-like figure and has cracks/crevices for additional character.

Box Elder is a fast growing tree that was often planted as a shade tree and for windbreaks. The wood is plain but sometimes Box Elder produces a burl in which the grain is radically deformed because of some stress or damage and makes small birdseye knots. This burl wood is highly figured. The Box Elder Burl I use in my knives comes from a storm-damaged tree that was part of the original trees planted during the Mormon migration to Utah. This particular piece provides a nice contrast to the Fossil Brain Coral.
