LV-4441 Olive Burl & Black Palm Acorn Pendant Box, Pill Fob, Secret Compartment-SCREW CAP

$ 68.00

This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Olive Burl (Olea europaea)with  Black Palm (Borassus flabellifer)  cap.  Olive is a tree of many religious, cultural and economic significants.  The leafy branches of olive are considered as a symbol of abundance, glory and peace. Olive oil also has been considered sacred and is till use in many religious ceremonies. The oil and fruit are important ingredients in many cuisines.  Olive is  the most mentioned tree in the Western sacred texts and literatures.  And the wood is one of my favorite with it's extra fine grain and beautiful figure.  Here I have a very nice piece of burl.  The dense figure is evident even in this small nut.  Capped with Black Palm, another very useful species, for added visual interest.  This is one pretty 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 small enough to be worn as a pendant (without the claw). Good for small daily pills, keepsake...Not recommended for long term storage of emergency pill, since I don't know how air/water tight the closure is. Through the ages, people has given out acorns as a symbol of prosperity and luck. This one is a unique gift.
