The tamarind tree (Tamarindus indica), also known as Indian date or sour date, is the only species of the plant genus Tamarindus in the subfamily of carob plants (Caesalpinioideae) within the legume family (Fabaceae or Leguminosae). It is widespread in Africa and adjacent areas. The bright, beautifully structured zebra tamarind wood is the sapwood of the tamarind tree, which is much lighter and softer than the heartwood. The structures are created by a complex, time-consuming fermentation process.
Wooden pieces which are supposed to be inserted into the body are best treated before first use and regularly later on with Jojoba or Linseed Oil. These oils harden when exposed to oxygen and protect the wood. This can darken the material a bit. We also recommend to additionally seal the wood with bees wax. Depending on how often you wear your jewelry this should be repeated regularly.
Jewelry from organic materials (i.e. wood, horn and bone) offers best wearing comfort due to its light weight and is suitable for people with allergies. As opposed to Piercing-Jewelry made from synthetic materials or stainless steel the formation of odors during wearing is greatly reduced. When used as intended the jewelry is harmless but not sterilizable. It will last a very long time given regular cleaning and correct treatment.
