This is a very cute mini acorn shaped box made out of American Smoketree (Cotinus coggygria) with Yolillo Palm Nut (Raphia taedigera) cap. Smoketrees are popular garden shrubs, and certainly not a fire harzard. The "smokes" are fluffy panicles of flowers that blooms over the plant. This is the only case where there is smoke without fire! The wood is very pretty with it's yellowish green stripes. It is also one of a few woods that emits a greenish yellow fluorescence under a black light. The palm nut adds visual complexity for an eye-pleasing effect. This is nice!
This tiny acorn has a removable swivel lobster claw attachment for keychain, lanyard, zipper pull, rearview mirror. It is also small enough to be worn as a pill pendant or cremation jewelry. The screw-on cap ensures that your content is secured. Great for small daily pills or any small things you want to have access on the go...It is also a unique gift since acorn is a symbol of good luck and prosperity.
