This chime is approx. 6.25” long (+ hanging line of approx. 4”) Banksia integrifolia is native to Australian, but gathered in California. Manzanita is gathered in southern Oregon.
These chimes are made of obsidian, a naturally occurring, volcanic rock.. They produce a wide range of lovely, melodic sounds dependent on thickness, lengths and number of pieces. Chimes are hung from various found objects of nature: seedpods, cones branches and driftwood. Because of the variances Nature brings, each chime is distinct, both visually and tonally.
