These are blocks of Karelian Birch that were sent to me from Russia.
Karelian Birch was used to make the second to last of the Faberge Eggs. It was intended for Russian Czar Nicholas II.
Here is a link to an article about the Karelian Birch Egg. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karelian_Birch)

This is beautiful wood with very unusual figure. The blocks have been professionally stabilized by K&G.
I will be taking individual photos and listing these blocks in our webstore throughout the day tomorrow.
Prices will range from $45 to about $65 for the very best blocks.

If anyone here is interested in the Karelian Birch,
I have just finished adding these blocks to the Stabilized Wood Blocks section (http://www.burlsource.us/servlet/the-Stabilized-Wood-BLOCKS/Categories)of our web store.
There are a few dozen really nice blocks to choose from.
I am not sure if I will be able to get any more of this wood in the future.

The group photo looks oranger than the blocks are in person.
Here is a more true to color photo.
