Premium Wood Pen Blank: Ambrosia Maple (Stabilised)

R85.00

Ambrosia Maple comes from regular Maple trees that have been infested by the ambrosia beetle.
The small beetle bores multiple tunnels and short galleries called cradles.
A fungus is responsible for the black and gray streaks that accompany each tunnel and adjacent wood.
The streaks add a unique look to this hardwood without affecting its structural integrity.
As the tree grows it stretches the streak that make the beautiful Ambrosia pattern.
Ambrosia Maple is also sometimes known as "Beetle Stained Maple".
This wood turns like other stabilized woods and has an exciting flair!
