This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Desert Ironwood (Olneya tesota) with Black Walnut (Juglans negra) cap. This ironwood is hard and heavy like a piece of iron, but with the shimmering of gold and the smoothness of glass when polished. Desert Ironwood is probably the nicest looking wood from North America. The American Indian believes that the wood will bring luck and good health to the people who carries it. I am already feeling very lucky to have a few nice pieces to work with! Beside the tasty nut itself, Walnut has always been a precious wood throughout the world for furniture, gun stock and guitar making. This particular cap came from a high figured, California grown piece. The wood combination in this acorn proudly showcases timbers made in the USA.
This acorn is a unique box for your valuables, with a screw-on cap ensures that your content is secured; good for jewelry, home decoration, keepsake... Through the ages, people has given out acorns as a symbol of prosperity and luck. This one is a unique gift for the "hard to give" people on your list!
