This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Mun Ebony (Diospyros mun) with Verawood (Bulnesia sarmientoi) cap. This combination showcases top notch timbers from two continents.. From SE Asia, Mun Ebony is my favorite ebony species for several reasons: the wood is very fine and easy to work with, the patterns can be very striking and a hint of green make this ebony special, the wood is very stable, dimensionally. This slim box was made out of a very nice ebony piece with lighter streaks. From South America, the green tinted Verawood cap adds a bright touch.
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 small daily pills, keepsake... Not recommended for long term storage of emergency pill, since I don't know how air/water tight the closure is. Through the ages, people has given out acorns as a symbol of prosperity and luck. This one is a unique gift.
