Kauri Gum Care Instructions - 

What you have here is the fossilized resin of the Kauri Tree, a rare piece of history from Kauri Trees long gone.

It’s an amber not a stone so:

  • Keep it free from solvents eg. perfume
  • No extreme heat eg. dash of the car in summer
  • Not intended for everyday use eg. sports
  • Can be rejuvenated using olive oil in case of fading

A soft cloth can be used as a buffer (Using sideways, not circular motions) to maintain the gum’s original shine.

Treat your piece as a precious gem and it will last forever.
