Morta Claw Bullet Pendant

Morta Claw Bullet Pendant


Bog Wood, also known as Morta, is a material from trees that have been buried in peat bogs and preserved from decay by the acidic and anaerobic bog conditions, sometimes for hundreds or even thousands of years. The wood is usually stained by tannins dissolved in the acidic water, so it becomes dark brown or black depending on aging and conditions. Bog-wood represents the early stages in the fossilization of wood, with further stages ultimately forming lignite and coal over a period of many millions of years.

This particular piece is 6000 years old, it comes from Russian ancient forests, now peat bogs. It's color is a beautiful uniform grayish black. Hand cut, carved and polished, it's preserved with a natural olive oil finish, and mounted on a 9mm bullet shell in dark bronze color.

*Morta claw shape and bullet casing sizes vary.
