This Cremation Urn is made out of Hawaiian Curly Koa Wood that was collected from Koa trees that were blown over during high winds on the slopes of Mauna Kea on the Big Island of Hawaii. Koa (Acacia Koa) is endemic to the Hawaiian Islands and does not grow in large harvest-able groves anywhere in the world. Koa is the second most prolific endemic tree growing in the State of Hawaii and even though it is in short supply and very expensive it is not on the Endangered Species List. Harvesting of Koa trees is now limited to trees that have been knocked down by natural causes and subject to government regulations. Thousands of Koa seedlings are planted yearly now to supplement natural propagation of the species.
The Koa Companion Urn for sale here is approximately Ten (10) inches wide by Seven (7) inches deep by Nine (9) inches high. I first made the Urn this size about twenty years ago so that Two Partners like Husband and Wife could be buried together and this Companion Urn would fit the niche at "Punchbowl Cemetery" ...The National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. Since then the size has been accepted throughout the Hawaiian Islands and I continue to make this Koa Companion Urn for burials throughout the State Of Hawaii.
This Koa Urn is made of the finest Curly Koa and is made to hold the cremated ashes of TWO Adult Partners. The Urn is covered with a precatalyzed semi-gloss lacquer finish. The Urn can be laser engraved directly into the wood or a brass plate can be mounted on one side.
Take a look at the pictures to really see the beauty of the Urn. Curly Koa has a radiation to it that most wood varieties do not have. Chatoyancy is the one word that is used the most with Curly Koa. Once you have seen Koa's splendor you will know why.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why don't you ship outside of the USA ?
I will consider and have shipped to other Countries but only after we agree on prices and shipping. This must be done through the Convo system here on Etsy and is not available for all items due to the weight and shipping restrictions on some of my items.
I will however ship to friends or relatives of customers who are located in the USA and then they can make shipping arrangements to the customers location overseas.
