Beautiful real alder pine cones in shining Red Copper, Silver and Gold

 Alder cones

The fruit of the Alder tree, these perfect miniature 'pine' cones represent resurrection and rebirth. The tree is associated with both fire and water elements, and is scared to the Norse god Odin.   The Alder has a strong association with the ancient Celts, the wood being favoured for shield-making and burning in the forge.
