This is a nice mini acorn box made out of Mopane (Colophospermum mopane) with Greenheart (Chlorocardium rodiei) cap. Mopane is the Southern Africa's heaviest timbers and is one of the top ten heaviest woods. It has very fine grain and a warm brown color with darker streaks. If you are into music, you probably know that this is the wood of choice for woodwind instruments. If you are into fish (not the kind on your plate), you probably notice that the gnarly root chunks of the tree are often sold as aquarium decoration, since the heavy wood will sink in water. If you are into woodturning like me, you gotta love this timber. But the love for Mopane is my old flame (which never dies). Right now, I am infatuated with Greenheart the cap (you can read my other listing to know more about it). The yellow-olive-green mix is just what I desire to cap off this baby.
A beautiful and unique box for your keepsake, this acorn is great for small daily pills, keepsake, jewelry or any small things you want to have access on the go. The screw-on cap ensures that your content is secured. It is also a unique gift since acorn is a symbol of good luck and prosperity.
