Summary
Natural Heartwood Cactus Rain Stick handcrafted in Chile and produces a mystical sound like rain trickling. The 30" length is considered a large rainstick, and allows for an extended rain fall duration. By slowly rotating the rainstick while holding it at a gentle angle, the rain fall will last much longer. --- After the plentiful Capado cactus plant lives about 6 decades it dies and dries out, and is then harvested, cleaned, and hollowed out by native artisans. The spines are pushed into the hard wood body, or small sticks are inserted, and many very small pebbles are sealed inside. The unique sound produced by turning the stick from end to end is mesmerizing to children and adults alike, and is still used in traditional rain ceremonies throughout South America today. --Manufacturer
