Considered a "living fossil", the Ginkgo biloba tree dates back 56 million years to the age of the dinosaurs. About seven million years ago the glaciers pushed the Ginkgo out of the North American continent and Europe, but the species somehow survived in two small areas in the Zhejing province in eastern China, where it is now considered native. So to honor the spirit of this magnificent, beautiful and very ancient tree species, this Ginkgo branch flute was named for the Chinese goddess of compassion "Guanyin" and tuned in the key of F# to the traditional major pentatonic scale of China, rather than to the standard minor pentatonic. To demonstrate her voice, the Chinese folk song "Jasmine Flower" is played in the sound sample.
