About the wood: Mastic tree or "sxinos" is a dioecious evergreen shrub or small tree of the pistacio genus growing up to 4 m (13 ft) tall which is cultivated for its aromatic resin, exclusively on the Greek island of Chios. Sxinos wood is of great quality, with its heartwood being particularly hard compared to its sapwood and ideal for small turning projects, like worry beads. Another characteristic that makes sxinos wood special and unique is the frequency of imperfections appeared on its bark, such as knots, which makes each piece unique.
The sxinos padauk pendant is 2.50cm wide by 6cm high.
