Each vase is unique. This listing is for the available vase(s) in the SMALL size with the GUM NUT engraving.

ENGRAVED DESIGN – GUM NUT / GUM LEAF:
The design is carved into the stone surface (via a handcrafted process - no computers or lasers), inked for increased definition and then sealed.
The GUM LEAF and the GUM NUT designs both came about after requests for an Australian motif in the range of engravings.
The GUM LEAF and NUT come from the Eucalyptus tree native to Australia. It has been noted as a symbol of strength, protection, and survival as well as leadership, focus, healing, goals, clarity, rejuvenation and connection. It is also considered of great benefit for its medicinal eucalyptus properties. It is also a personal favourite in our beautiful landscape.
