Ancient Bog Oak (stabilized)
Stabilized Ancient Bog Oak. These blocks were cut from a tree that died thousands of years ago and fell into a river in the Ukraine. While the tree was buried in the sediment the wood was absorbing minerals from the mud and water. That is what gives this wood the dark coloring and metallic luster. The colors in this wood can show a change from light to dark when the light hits from different angles. Some of the blocks were cut quarter-sawn and show off flashy rays and flecks when in direct light.
