Buckeye burl (Aesculus californica) is the burl wood of a tree native to California that is a close relative of the European horse chestnut. The wood of these burls is infused with a fungus (Ascomycetes sp.) producing gray-blue color, which makes it look very interesting and like a stone, almost marble-like. The wood resembles poplar and willow wood in its characteristics, so it is rather light and soft, its color can range from creamy-whitish to a typical pale yellow to blue-gray-anthracite. The burl wood is very finely figured, always multicolored and with very beautiful color gradients one of the most beautiful burl woods we have.
