This is a tiny acorn shaped box made out of Mun Ebony (Diospyros mun) with
Black Palm (Borassus flabellifer) cap.
This acorn combines two dark woods from SE Asia. Two of my favorites. Mun is a precious timber by all account. Palm, on the other hand, is in the grass family, so it's not even a "wood", but I found it so attractive as acorn cap for the unique pattern. This palm tends to split, splinter and not an easy subject to thread, but once finished, I found it to be a very stable wood. This is one dark and handsome acorn.
A nice box for your valuables. The screw-on cap makes this nature inspired box extra special and ensures that your content is secured. It is ready to dangle off your keychain, bag zipper, belt with the removable lobster claw. The nut is long enough to be use as a portable needlecase. Through the ages, people has given out acorns as a symbol of prosperity and luck. This one is a unique gift.
