‘HAKUTAN’ A SINGLE SCULPTURAL CHUNK OF WHITE CHARCOAL BY SORT OF COAL

Equally pleasing to the eye, body and mind, this aesthetic chunk of powerful White Charcoal made from hard Korean Holm oak is a natural and electricity-free air freshener for any room, but we think it works especially well in the bathroom or kitchen where it will effectively regulate humidity levels, while cleansing the air of pollution, steam and odours. White Charcoal, or active charcoal has long been known for its purifying, enriching and restorative benefits. In Japan a HAKUTAN is often placed next to the computer, where the negative ions that it emits help to neutralize the harmful effects of electromagnetic waves. As an added benefit, negative ions are airborne vitamins for your spirits and sense of wellbeing.

The power of White Charcoal
White Charcoal is the highest grade of charcoal with approximately 90% carbon content. In Asia it has been used for centuries for its purifying, enriching and restorative benefits and is often referred to as ‘active charcoal’. Despite its name White Charcoal is pitch black but gets its unlikely name from the unique production process, briefly lending it a whitish hue, as it is hastily pulled from the 1,200° C clay kiln to cool in sand, soil and ashes. What is also fascinating about this material is its extreme porosity. Filled with countless micro cavities, the surface area of just one gram of it equals around 250 m2, or the size of a tennis court, providing plenty of room for its ceaseless exchange of molecules with the surrounding elements. White Charcoal efficiently adsorbs impurities from water, air or even skin, while releasing vital minerals absorbed by the living tree, such as potassium, magnesium, calcium and phosphorus – thus turning tap water into pure and pleasant mineral water, removing steam and smells from the air, and even working as a balancing factor for body and mind through the flood of negative ions it emits, which again turns nearby metals magnetic. Yet, despite the intense activity within, the surface of White Charcoal is smooth, hard and beautiful, like a piece of porcelain, and if you strike it gently, you will hear a clear, metallic ring.

Lifecycle: Your HAKUTAN will last for a lifetime of use, provided you keep it clean and occasionally revitalize it in direct sunlight. Should you wish to discard it, nature will gladly take it back. An excellent fertilizer, just crush it and mix with potting soil where it will add nourishment and regulate the PH balance – so your plants can thrive and flourish and do an even better job of absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere around this planet that we love so much.
