Wooden Apple

Carved of hardest spice tree wood, once adorning the mantlepiece of Gaia, mother of Helen and Harris, this apple was once painted a startlingly shiny gold. This was made by mixing a secret combination of elements, grinding them down with powdered chunks of sparkly and turning them to liquid paint with the careful addition of happy butterfly tears. So desperate were others for the secret recipe that the Apple was stolen almost daily, a little of the patina scraped off each time.
