Verawood is a rare exotic wood from South America that delivers a strong sharp tone.
Verawood ranks among the heaviest woods in the world. The material is very dense and exceptionally rigid.
Verawood is a good choice for handheld musical instruments because it is amazingly waxy which makes it impervious to skin secretions. And it is a super strong wood that can take a great amount of physical abuse. That's the perfect combination for a serious bone rattler. How durable is Verawood? Reports claim the heartwood can last indefinitely in the ground without chemical preservatives. What's more, Verawood can outlast treated timbers used as piling and fence posts. So if you long for Lignum Vitae but are watching your pennies, then this Poor Man's Ironwood is for you.

Get the Exact Width You Want
No other store offers Shooting Star bones by exact width. Width varies from batch to batch. But if you are looking to match an old pair of bones, or if you simply want to know what width you are getting, then you have come to the right place.
Narrow (7/8", 1")
Narrow Shooting Star bones deliver a remarkable tonal range for their size. These bones are perfect for kids, people with small hands, and anyone who enjoys the traditional American (aka minstrel one-finger) style of playing.
Wide (1-1/8", 1-3/16", 1-1/4", 1-5/16", 1-3/8")
Wide Shooting Star bones are favored by many experienced players. If you prefer the two-finger (aka Irish or European) style of playing, then you will love these wide classic bones because they enable you to produce a remarkable tonal range. Not sure which size to get? We think 1-3/16" to 1-1/4" is ideal.
