Irish Bog Oak wood in antique silver pen
When the trunk gets trapped by its branches and roots in the riverbed, over time layers of mud, sand and gravel cover it. With no oxygen, the wood turns into a fossil.
During hundreds and thousands of years, with iron from the water, the rotting of oak timber is slower. A special role is played by the currents of the underground waters in the creation of bog oak, binding it with tannin in the wood and in this way darkening the wood. This centuries-long process, often termed turns the wood from golden-brown to completely black, while increasing its hardness that it can only be carved with the use of especially sharp tools.
