Murrunkun (Ebony) Leaves on scratchpaper

$60

These are the leaves of Murrunkun, the Ebony tree (Diospyros humilis) which grows in sandstone areas and rocky gorges in Kakadu and West Arnhem Land. Murrunkun has a fruit which turns bright yellow during Bangkerreng, the late wet season. The fruit is sometimes eaten by bininj but it leaves a dry taste in the mouth.
