This absolutely stunning box is made from very rare green Ancient Swamp Kauri.
It is thought the Kauri timber gets its distinct green tones when it is buried with Tea Tree. The Tea Tree oil reacts with the resins contained in the Kauri giving it a green tint. This process happens over many thousands of years while the Kauri is buried.
A very small portion of Ancient Kauri holds this green colour making it very sought after amongst wood workers.
This box is of medium size, has 2 levels, is lined in red and measures approximately 23 x 14cm. It is also very heavy.
