This Chimes is an amazing low priced gift!

The wood of the Woodstock Chimes of Mercurcy is finished with a veneer of Bubinga, a lustrous African Rosewood.

Just like the planet Mercury. If not for that veneer of Bubinga, the whole planet would go up in flames, being so close to the Sun!

The Chimes of Mercury are tuned to a pentatonic, five note scale, shown below. In this way when the various chimes are struck, they act in concert with one another to create a beautiful tone.

Via Woodstock:

"Named for the planet which was named for the ancient Roman messenger god.

The Chimes of Mercury is named for the innermost planet in our solar system which, in turn, was named for the ancient Roman messenger god. Mercury is similar in appearance to the Moon, with lots of craters. Because it is normally not visible because of the glare of the Sun, Mercury can be viewed on in the morning or at twilight.

This chime is designed and handcrafted for superior musical performance. It is hand-tuned to a universal, pentatonic (five-note) scale and acts in concert with the window to create random patterns of wonderful sound. Harmonizes beautifully with all the other Encore Collection chimes."
