Green oak wood
Green oak wood
Dead oak wood infected by a cup fungus, Chlorociboria [one of two species, most likely C. aeruginascens], which causes the malachite green staining of the wood. It was used in marquetry [Tunbridge ware] because of its attractive colour. For the fruiting bodies [apothecia] see NS3878 : Green Elfcup (Chlorociboria aeruginascens).
