This is a very cute mini acorn shaped box made out of Bois de Rose (Dalbergia maritima) with Cocuswood (Brya ebenus) cap. Bois de Rose is one of the rarest and most beautiful types of true rosewood from Madagascar. The timber has a unique deep reddish purple tone that darken with time. The wood is often adorned with dark veins as shown in this acorn. This beautiful timber is increasingly difficult to obtain, as all legal exports have stopped permanently. Cocuswood is even rarer in comparison. Once popular for woodwind instrument, it is now almost commercially extinct. If you like rare exotics, this is it.
This small 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.
