Third Eye Pinecones are hand-crafted from the center of the world’s densest Pinecone – a species which can only reproduce in forest fire – the Knobcone Pine. Third Eye Pinecones come in an enormous array of different sizes, shapes, colors and hues. The “lighter” colored varieties are typically younger, and have spent less time off of the tree. The darker varieties are often older, and have sometimes spent one-to-three years curing. The company believes every piece transmits the essence of the tree it came from.
