Dimensions: 6&1/2" long x 2&1/2" wide x 1&1/16" thick .
Stabilized Ancient Bog Oak from Ukraine. Good color and a nice metallic luster that can show slight color changes as the light hits from different angles. With indirect lighting the wood looks black. In direct sunlight there will be a bronze color shimmer.
This block was cut from a piece that was not large enough to justify the cost of carbon date testing. It is estimated to be about 2500 years old based on carbon dated pieces from the same area that were similar in appearance.
Professionally stabilized by K&G Stabilizing. Their chemical stabilizing process fully impregnates the wood with a chemical solution that is then cured into a solid. This process makes the wood harder and more durable than it was prior to stabilizing.
