Item details

Amazing tiny "pine"cones from an amazing tree: the Dawn Redwood (Metasequoia glyptostroboides) was thought to have gone extinct during the Miocene, approximately 5-7 million years before present. However, in 1944 the trees were discovered growing in western China, making it a "living fossil". Further adding to this specie's strange tale is the fact that the species has experienced morphological stasis, which means that the trees (and cones!) from living Metasequoia are identical to fossil Metasequoia from the Cretaceous period ( 80-65 million years before present).

The cones are very interesting and lovely: seen from above they appear generally oval; if you look at them straight on (down the cone's axis) you see that they are square. You will receive about 50 Metasequoiacones, all fresh from this year's cone drop, carefully dried, and the majority with stems.

Cones vary in size slightly but average 1" long by 0.75" in diameter. Collected on private land from a living tree in a sustainable manner. Cones have been oven-dried.

I'm a big fan of Dawn Redwood cones. I wanted some baby cones to put into the bottom of a hurricane lamp, and they're perfect.

{General}
- Most items are sent via USPS Priority Mail or First Class Mail and include tracking.
- Prices quoted are for shipping via USPS domestically to the continental U.S.
- We package our items very carefully, and send all fragile items insured.
- We make our very best effort to ship within 1-3 business days of your cleared payment as we consider that once you've paid for it, it's yours!

{Lost Items}
- Once we deliver the item to the carrier, the item is out of our control and we are not responsible for items lost in transit; however we will assist you with filing a claim.

- We ship to the address provided by Etsy unless you state a different address on your order in the comments section.
- We are not responsible for shipping to incorrect Etsy-provided addresses.

{Refunds of Estimated Shipping Overages}

- We do our best to accurately estimate shipping charges in advance, but since shipping costs are based on buyer location, sometimes shipping is cheaper than estimated shown cost.

- I am happy to combine shipment costs on multiple items
- we will refund overages on shipping charges for combined purchases as per our policy above.
