Where does Ancient Swamp Kauri come from?
Thousands of years ago northern New Zealand was covered in giant Kauri forests, some of which became buried in the wetlands or swamps from some sort of catastrophic event, the giant Kauri trees were preserved in the swamps due to the lack of oxygen. As the swamps drained away thousands of years later, the Kauri has become visible at the surface and is now being recovered to make products such as this one.
