About Oak Gall / Masikai :

Oak apple or Oak Gall / Masikai is the common name for a large, round, vaguely apple-like gall commonly found on many species of oak. Oak Gall (Masikai) range in size from 2 to 4 centimetres (1 to 2 in) in diameter and are caused by chemicals injected by the larva of certain kinds of gall wasp in the family Cynipidae. The adult female wasp lays single eggs in developing leaf buds. The wasp larvae feed on the gall tissue resulting from their secretions, which modify the oak bud into the gall, a structure that protects the developing larvae until they undergo metamorphosis into adults. Considerable confusion exists in the general "literature" between the oOak Gall (Masikai) and the oak marble gall. The oak marble is frequently called the oak apple due to the superficial resemblance and the preponderance of the oak marble gall in the wild. Other galls found on oak trees include the oak artichoke gall and the acorn cup gall, but each of these has its own distinctive form. Some common Oak Gall (Masikai)-forming species are the Biorhiza pallida gall wasp in Europe, Amphibolips confluenta in eastern North America,and Atrusca bella in western North America. Oak Gall (Masikai)come in many sizes, shapes and colors but are all products of the oak trees' reaction to the larvae of certain wasps known as gall wasps. These larvae cause the oak tree to manufacture cells and substances that produce the gall and in turn the wasp larvae use the gall as both food and shelter. The galls usually do not harm the oak; however, the gall formation is a defensive measure by the oak tree and therefore contains strong natural astringent compounds such as tannic acid. 

Oak Gall / Masikai may be brownish, yellowish, greenish, pinkish, or reddish. Oak Gall / Masikai have been used in the production of ink since at least the time of the Roman Empire. From the Middle Ages to the early twentieth century, iron gall ink was the main medium used for writing in the Western world. Gall nuts are a source of tannin in the production of iron gall ink. Tannins belong to a group of molecules known as polyphenols and can be taken from different parts of plants such as leaves, pods, fruits, and gall nuts. Along with gall nuts, other important ingredients in the production of iron gall ink include iron sulfate and gum arabic. The reaction between the tannins from the gall nut and the iron produces a complex that gives the iron gall its color. The gum arabic makes the ink more viscous and helps bind the ink to the writing surface. Oak Gall (Masikai) are easy to identify and are found worldwide in many different varieties. Collecting Oak Gall (Masikai) neither harms the oak tree nor hurts the gall wasp larvae once they have hatched. There are many possible uses for Oak Gall (Masikai) as an easily accessible source of tannic acid while out in the wild, and the possibilities for using oOak Gall (Masikai) in creative ways have yet to be exhausted
