This is a lot of 30, clean, Ponderosa Pine cones from Colorado. The average size is just over two inches tall and about two inches wide. Most of these are freshly fallen. They are from my five acre property on the Front Range of Colorado. These are NOT from pine beetle infested trees!
NOTE: the cones this year are healthy, large, and some of the cones from one tree in particular have a beautiful and unique tan - colored trim to them which I haven't seen before! They're also chuck full of seeds, which, again, I have never seen before! I usually include a variety -- some medium - sized cones, some large - cones, and this year, some cones picked straight from the tree that's producing cones with the unique, tan highlights. When they come straight from the tree, they retain their rich and natural color ... unlilke the cones which fall to the ground and immediately start to fade to that common brown color. So, some may be a bit pre-mature (which is why you may see green pine needles attached). Anyhow, I apologize for the limited selection right now. I'm in he process of fixing up my home to sell, so all of my supplies and tools are packed up, and I can only offer what I have readily - available. Once this process is over, I'll be able to offer different types of cones including several Spruce varieties, and well as Douglas Fir cones which have a unique, pointed tip at the edge of each flap that makes up the cone.

Returns & exchanges
No returns accepted, but please do let me know if you have any issues. Every situation is different.
In order to keep your pressed flower art looking vibrant indefinitely, make sure to hang or display the piece indoors, and preferably out of direct light. Each piece does have layers of protectant on it, but no matter how much I put on, a piece that sits in direct, beating sunlight day after day after day will fade. On a wall in your home, out of direct sunlight, it will last! You can also refresh the coating and shine on your piece at any time by buying an aerosol can of high gloss acrylic. You can usually find this at a hobby store, or even at Home Depot or Lowe's. It must be aerosol. Hold the can about six inches from the piece and lightly spray on the coating. I refresh pieces I have at home all the time. The wonderful thing about the aerosol acrylic is that the coats do not build upon one another and get gummy. If you have a piece of art of old fencing or barn wood, you can refresh the sheen by buying an aerosol polyurethane spray and doing the same thing. Again, polyurethane does not protect the piece enough to hang it outdoors in the sun and elements. The flowers will lose their colors. You can dust a piece by using canned air--the same type of air duster you would use for a computer keyboard.
