This is a mini pendant box made out of Purpleheart (Peltogyne paniculata) with African Blackwood (Dalbergia melanoxylon) cap. Purpleheart is a special wood that quickly turns purple after exposure. The color will deepen with time. This is one of my favorite wood for it's unique color and high density. There is also something fun about this pendant: do you see a doll with a chignon and a purple dress? Didn't meant to make a doll, but wood turning can be full of surprises!
This tiny threaded vial is small enough to be worn as a pendant with a secret compartment for small daily pills or memorial keepsake. The screw-on cap ensures that your content is secured.
Dimension (largest diameter x height): 5/8" x 1-5/8"
