This is a very nice vase made out of Pitaschio (Pistacia vera) with Walnut base (Juglans negra). The Pistachio has a nice green tint with beautiful swirling grain. Yes, it is the tree with the yummy greenish nut. The smaller cracks were filled with black acrylic and a leather cord was used to "mend' the natural void. I don't know how functional this vase it but it is certainly fun to explore visually and manually.
Dimension: 5-5/8" x 3-1/8"
