Term: Valonia

A majestic, semi-evergreen (the leaves thin from October until January) native to the eastern side of the Mediterranean. A substance known as “valonia” is made from the cups of the tree’s acorns. After being dried, the cups are ground and the result is used for tanning and dyeing, although it has also been used in the creation of magickal inks.
