Faceted Burl

When a tree starts to heal itself and forgets to stop healing.

A burl is a tree growth in which the grain has grown in a deformed manner. It is usually found on the trunk, in the form of a rounded outgrowth.

Prized for the spectacular grain, texture and colors.  Burl holds hidden treasures of unusual design and can be found in in everything from furniture to the dashboard of a Rolls Royce.
