The phoenix firebird is captured superbly. Flames are embossed at the tip of the pen, the phoenix is shown rising from the ashes with wings outspread, with the clip depicting the majestic tail. An amber crystal on the clip and cap add to the beauty and majesty of the firebird. This pen plants a tree.

Though the phoenix was popularised by the Harry Potter books and films, this sacred firebird’s story has roots in ancient civilisations. Every 1,000 years the phoenix builds itself a nest which burns fiercely until they are both ashes. From the ashes a young phoenix appears, renewing the life cycle of the bird and making the phoenix virtually immortal and invincible. The phoenix is a potent symbol of hope for those who have been through difficult times and triumphed.

Gidgee Timber

This phoenix pen features gidgee timber. Australian gidgee is an acacia timber prized for its strength and durability. Gidgee is one of Australia's hardest timbers. The heartwood is a deep, rich brown colour and the outer sapwood is very pale. Gidgee timber has a very fine grain and can be highly figured. The indigenous Kalkadoon people made nulla nulla's, shields, boomerangs, swords and clapsticks from gidgee’s rich, brown wood.
