F#-minor Ziricote Raven
Ziricote is a small tree native to southern Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean. Ziricote has a very unique appearance, which is sometimes referred to as “spider-webbing” or “landscape” grain figure. This is a heavy hard wood often used in musical instruments. The accents on this flute are Spalted Buckeye Burl (the lighter colored wood). The darker accents are Asian Tiger Eye Burl. The inlay strip is primarily Tulipwood with black and white accents and Turquoise cabochons between the holes. The block is Kingwood that is mounted by a 925 sterling silver Raven with a Vegvísir (Icelandic for sign post or wayfinder) which is a magical stave intended to help the bearer find their way through rough weather. The accent at the center of the compass is a Turquoise cabochon.
This wood is not only beautiful, but makes a great flute. This instrument will be treasured for generations.
