Thuya Burl is from North Africa and, to the best of my knowledge, is one of only a very few burls that grow underground. It is a beautiful burl with varying shades of brown with dark, even black streaks running through it. The back is book matched Curly, Figured Claro Walnut that grows in the western part of the U.S., while the frame is made of Black Walnut. It is an interesting, yet pleasing combination of woods with a beautiful voice to bring it to life.
