Native to Australia the tall eucalyptus tree is not only known for its beauty but for its aromatic leaves that yield medicinal oil. The eucalyptus tree is the only source of food for koala bears. Among its many visual attractions is its exfoliating outer bark which peels away in long strips to reveal a pale blue-gray trunk that gives the tree its common name of blue gum.
Materials: The leaves are cast in bronze with 925 silver wires.
Measures: 1.5" L
