This original eco jewelry starts with the knob cone pine trees (Pinus attenuata) grown in select areas of California and Oregon. The knobcone pine cone is developed on young trees and tightly circles the trunks ranging from 3-5 inches in size. The pine cones has tough outer spines and only opens to release the seed when the temperature is excessively hot, recorded 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Knobcone pines are tough trees that grow well in poor soils with mature heights of 25-75 feet depending on the climatic conditions. They are difficult to pick and have a protective layer of epoxy resin that keeps them closed as they are stuck to the trees for up to 50 years, depending on fires.
