Material Details: Ebony is a symbol of power, purity, balance, protection and luck. This wood is said to amplify magnetic energy and is revered as the most powerful and protective of wood types. Ebony is a symbol of protection and power, likely due to its dark colour. Ebony has a long standing history from being revered in Egypt for its beauty and mystery, to being used in the handles of Samurai swords. Ebony bark is also used as a dark blue pigment used in cloth painting, and is the most ideal wood for musical instruments because of its stability and superior tonality and clear tone.
Burl wood is the result of a unique occurrence in the way the wood grows on some trees. Not the name of an actual tree, but instead the result of an area of growth usually near the trunk, (or sometimes even underground), where an area is filled with knots. This can result in the tree looking deformed in some manner from the outside, but on the inside, the wood is filled with beautiful, natural twirling swirls. The grain in burl wood grows in an unusual and extraordinary way.
Brass is composed of copper and zinc, and is said to have metaphysical healing properties to boost the immune system and to give courage. Repeatedly wearing jewelry with brass helps to take on your own body chemistry revealing your personal energy signature.
