This is a nice mini acorn box made out of Purple Lilac (Syringa vulgaris) with East Indian Rosewood (Dalbergia latifolia) cap. Yes, this is the Lilac that smells so good in the garden. It surprise me to find out that the wood is as beautiful as the flower, with a lilac hue. This is another rare find, since lilac is not a commercial timber due to it's small size. The wood, however, is one of the best timber to work with. The wood is very fine grain with multicolor streaks, comparable in quality to the finest rosewoods. I capped this nut off with a true rosewood so you can see for yourself. The East Indian rosewood also has a purple tint to compliment the purple nut. This is as large an acorn as I can make with this pretty timber.
A beautiful and unique box for your keepsake, this acorn is great for small daily pills, keepsake, jewelry or any small things you want to have access on the go. The screw-on cap ensures that your content is secured. It is also a unique gift since acorn is a symbol of good luck and prosperity.
