purpleheart fountain pen
Unless you’re a woodworking enthusiast, you might be surprised to know that we don’t stain the wood used in our purpleheart wood pens. This stunning color actually exists in nature! Curiously, the gorgeous deep purple color is harvested from such a boring looking tree.
Purpleheart trees range from Southeastern Brazil to Costa Rica and even to Trinidad, but most species grow in the Amazon basin.
Purpleheart wood is one of the hardiest and most sturdy woods in the world. As it is extremely dense and watertight, it is also very resistant to decay and to attack by fungi, termites, and other insects.
Although purpleheart wood seems exotic and rare because of its absolutely gorgeous color, it is actually one of the most durable, stable, and sustainable wood species. Not only is it resistant to water and insect invasion, but it can also withstand radical and abrupt changes in climate and humidity.
In modern day pagan religions, purpleheart wood harbors important spiritual qualities. Many believe it enhances creative energy, knowledge, and assists in healing. It also may eliminate negative energies and tension in the home.
Purpleheart wood is both functional and spectacular in color.
