This is a tiny threaded holder made out of Olive (Olea europaea) with Purpleheart (Peltogyne paniculata) plug. Olive is a tree of many relegious, cultural and economic significants. The leafy branches of Oilve 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. The small purpleheart plug caps off a tiny compartment in this pendant bead.
The crew-on cap makes this holder extra special and ensures that your content is secured. Good for small daily pills, memorial keepsake. Small enough to be worn as a pendant for hang on your keychain, zipper pull...Not recommended for long term storage of emergency pill, since I don't know how air/water tight the closure is. For a permanent seal, apply a small amount of wood glue to the threads before closing.
