This is a nice mini acorn box made out of Lignum Vitae (Guiacum officinale) with African Blackwood (Dalbergia melanoxylon) cap. Genuine Lignum Vitae is quite famous for being "the densest wood in the world". The wood is also believed to have medicinal properties in its resins and chips; "Lignum Vitae" is Latin for "Wood of Life." Official National Flower of Jamaica, the timber is now rare and expensive. African Blackwood is just that, jet black and what a dense wood it is! It is actually a rosewood species. In the Orient, Lignum and Blackwood are known as green and black sandalwood respectively, don't know why, but they are surely precious timbers, with or without the sandalwood fragrant.
This small acorn box 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.
