These are awesome grade A- Amanita Muscaria caps picked in Lativa! European Latvia Amanitas have been a part of our selection the past 2 years… we are always super excited to have these available to you all 🙂
The difference between these and the Washington mushrooms are extremely significant. They are both wonderful teachers in their own ways, the European tend to be very peaceful and calming in their presence and more energizing than the Washington. Yet they are not as energizing as the Czech specimen. The Latvia are a very balanced Amanita, great for those just getting to know this teacher.
Very pretty ranging from orange/yellow to bright red 🙂 Absolutely beautiful cap specimen and small bits of stems on some of them (super cute looking ha)!
Our A- European mushrooms are less vibrant than the A+ in terms of aesthetic beauty. They are however the same exact mushrooms, with the exact same aromatic potency. A- mushrooms range in color from bright to dark, beautiful yet not nearly as much as the A+. Our A- mushrooms will be a mix containing possibly some intact specimen, but mostly or entirely broken pieces. If you’d like more full mushrooms, check out our A+ listing!
It’s always an honor for us to have Amanita Muscaria available for those in need. This plant has taught us so much here at Eternity in a Box and is a a teacher which we hold in the highest of regards.
These were used traditionally in Siberian shamanism. They also have a common mythical connotation in stories such as Alice in Wonderland, and are often used as a symbol for ‘otherworldiness’ in illustration. Read about the roots of the Santa Claus tradition in relation to these mushroms, ha pretty mindblowing stuff.
Not for human consumption!
Your Amanita purchase will be mostly whole caps and some cap fragments…little to no shake.
