This is a nice mini acorn box made out of Bethlehem Olive Wood (Olea europaea) with Desert Ironwood (Olneya tesota) 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. This particular piece of timber came from the trimmings (pruning) of the Bethlehem olive trees, the birth place of Christ, and therefore, Christianity. Capped off with Desert Ironwood, which the American Indian believes will bring luck and good health to the people who carries it, this acorn is the combination of two symbolic and valuable trees from the Old and New Worlds.
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.
