Men's Cufflinks - Russian Black Morta (Bog Oak) - 5,000 Years Old

$75.00

Only 1 available


Each pair of these cufflinks is handmade one at a time, by me, in my home shop in Forest, Va, USA. Because even woods of the same species can vary in color and texture, yours may appear differently from the pictures, but be assured that each set is entirely unique and is made to order. They measure roughly 0.75" (3/4") in diameter.

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. Bog-wood may come from any tree species naturally growing near or in bogs, including oak, pine, yew, swamp cypres, and kauri.

During hundreds and thousands of years, under the influence of the minerals and iron from the water, the decomposition of oak timber is considerably slower. In the formation of morta a special role is played by the currents of the underground waters, providing solution of the ingredients which make compounds with larger quantities of tanin from the wood and in this way induce darkening of the wood colour. The centuries-long process of timber change, often termed “maturation” results in colour alteration from golden-brown to completely black, and its hardness is increased to such a level that later it can only be carved with the use of specially grind and exceptionally firm tools.
