Tobacco Magic Flute in Bass Cm set with Green Titanium Quartz Crystals
With a beautifully clear and resonant voice tuned to a bass Cm pentatonic scale, modes 1 & 4, this naturally beautiful
Tree Tobacco (Nicotiana glauca) Prayer Flute is empowered with 10 high quality Green Titanium Quartz crystal points,
set like Spring buds into each branchlet stub spiraling up around the flute. Whenever this flute's air column vibrates
in the expression of its sound, it also vibrates the quartz crystals, creating through the piezoelectric effect
a subtle electricity that amplifies the prayers and intentions of the player. This is a flute of natural magic,
blending the shamanic power of crystals in harmonious synergy with the prayerful spirit of Tobacco.
This very special, magic flute plays with the slightest of breaths. Her sound chamber, as with all Dryad Flutes,
was bored out unsplit, honoring the strength, character and integrity of the Tree Tobacco's growth rings.
The full length of the flute measures 26 1/2" in length. The finger holes are ergonomically offset for ease of playing.
Elk leather lacing lends its strength and medicine to secure the bird to her nest. To help prevent wetout, the bird has been fitted
with a cedar shoe. This Tree Tobacco flute has been well sealed, inside and out, so that neither of the alkaloids in Nicotiana glauca
(nicotine and anabasine) come into physical contact with the player.
Tree Tobacco ( Nicotiana glauca ) is a species of wild tobacco native to South America that can grow to the size of a small tree.
It has naturalized to other parts of the world, including here in Southern California where the Cahuilla Indians used its leaves
"interchangeably with other tobacco species in hunting rituals and as a poultice to treat swellings, bruises, cuts, wounds, boils,
sores, inflamed throat, and swollen glands." (source) Various types of tobacco have been used traditionally in native cultures
throughout the Americas as offerings to the spirits, for planting, for gathering food, for healings
and for the Native American Pipe Ceremony. (source)
