Black Cluster Burl Myrtle is a variation of myrtle burl with darker and more frequent variations in the wood. It is typically found along the coastal regions of central and northern California and Southern Oregon. Myrtle trees are two to three feet wide and grow up to 85 feet. The figured patterns are the result of the burl which is usually a virus within the wood while it was still growing. Although sometimes the burl results from trauma the tree may have suffered. This black cluster burl myrtle is from Oregon.
Agate is chalcedony, silica and quartz. There are many types of agate. They are found in “host” rocks that are usually metamorphic or volcanic. Extremely fine grain and a variety of color is a mainstay of agate. The finish contains two coats of Tung oil; sanded after each coat.
