Additional Information: The 6,000 Year Old Swamp Kauri was growing during the ice age when Woolly Mammoths were roaming and was buried by natural cataclysmic events. This Swamp Kauri is the oldest workable timber on Earth. The tree was discovered by a utility company which were preparing to install utility poles and they came across a huge Kauri tree buried in the ground in New Zealand. The tree was removed and pieces were sent for carbon-dating and these were determined to be around 6,000 years old. This particular piece of Swamp Kauri has nice swirly figure and two-tone colors.

Apple is a fruit tree wood with very fine texture. Trees are slow growing and normally only cut when they’re no longer useful as a fruit tree, Apple is a prized wood for whirlwind instruments. This particular piece is knotty with nice figure and complements the 6,000 Year Old Swamp Kauri.
