Digging Up The Past
Some 5000 years ago an earthquake or major volcanic eruption felled the Kauri kingdom, in the forests of the Waikato. These once giants of trees came to rest in the peat of the Waikato and have remained preserved, for thousands of years...
Near Huntly in the Waikato (North Island, NZ) they were reawakened from their long lie in, to see the daylight of their future.
The smooth stone pictured is made from Ancient New Zealand Swamp Kauri, estimated to be 4,000 years old. The beautiful grains and natural colours are enhanced with a polished finish. Can be used as a paperweight or simply a stunning piece for your house or office.
