For millennia, Olivewood has remained a wood of great cultural and religious importance.
Found in the Mediterranean Basin — from Portugal to the Levant, and the Arabian Peninsula — and Southern Asia, as far east as China, the Olive tree grows as a small evergreen tree or shrub. The color and grain pattern typically vary, but it almost always has stunning features like figuring or areas with magnificent burling qualities. Olive wood is considered very durable wood and hence excellent to make utensils out of.
It's also evident how highly valued Olivewoods have been throughout history; many cultures - including Greeks & Romans- had great esteem towards this exquisite natural resource because they knew just what kind of choices could be made from these various shades available at their disposal!
