This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Spalted Mango (Mangifera indica) with Coconut Palm (Cocos nucifera) cap. This yummy delicious acorn combined two beautiful and useful trees from the Tropics. Mango is one of my favorite tropical fruit. There are a wide varieties of mangos in cultivation from where I used to live. Here, it's also mango season, but the choice is limited to one or two variety import from Mexico and South America--much better than nothing. Coconut needs no introduction. It is such a useful tree from top to bottom. The two timbers looks awesome together, but there is another reason for this acorn. If you are interested, you can check out my ramblings from my blog.
A nice box for your valuables. The screw-on cap makes this nature inspired box extra special and ensures that your content is secured, good for jewelry, keepsake... Through the ages, people has given out acorns as symbol of prosperity and luck. This one is a unique gift.
