Object Research

Sweetgum Balls:

The sweetgum tree appeared to be a spainish work by F. Hernandez in 1651 when he described a tree producing fragnant gum resembling liquid amber. It was introduced in Europe in 1681. Was once used for smoking in France, but is mainly used as a seed carrier to plant more Sweetgum trees. The shape of the seed was used as a design for the super monkey ball game.
