The stopper, made of silicone, seals air out of bottles to keep it's contents fresh.  The Purple Heart Wood is best known for its unusual purple color. Purple Heart is found most common in the Amazon basin, and frequently grows in Columbia, Guyana, Surinam and Vanezuela. It is also known as Nazareno, Morado, Tananeo and Guarabu.

This wood has exceptional bending strength (far stronger than Maple, Oak or Teak) with a high tolerance to shock loading. It is highly desired by hobbyist and craftsmen who use this hard heavy wood in small projects.

The trees are tall and grow to 150 feet with trunk diameters up to 48 inches.

Turned on a lathe, sanded and finished with four coats of polish, all by hand, creates a beautiful shine that brings out the natural beauty of the wood.  It is a water proof, high gloss finish that is non-toxic and non-flammable after drying. Over time, the oils from your hand will enhance the finish and the wood may darken.

No duplicating equipment is used in my work, therefore, even with like woods, no two Bottle Stoppers will be identical. This Bottle Stopper is truly one of a kind.
