LV-2197 Acorn Pendant Box, Charm, Pill Holder from Boxwood & Lignum Vitae-SCREW CAP

$ 62.00

French Boxwood (Buxus sempervirens) with Lignum Vitae (Guiacum officinale) cap. Boxwood is a hard and heavy wood from a slow growing, small shrub, a very popular ornamental plant in gardens, particularly for topiary and hedges.  It is the densest wood that the entire European continent has to offer. The wood is often used to make woodwind instrument, chess pieces, engraving and as ivory substitute due to its extremely fine grain.  Also my favorite wood for turning.  Partner with true Lignum Vitae, the hardest and heaviest wood wood from the New World. "Lignum Vitae" is Latin for "Wood of Life" due to it's medicinal property. Official National Flower of Jamaica, the timber is now rare and expensive. What's more, it can eventually develop a dark green patina, one of a very few woods that just gets greener as it aged! These heavy weight woods are just perfect for the making of tiny acorns, like this one!

A nice box for your valuables. The screw-on cap makes this nature inspired box extra special and ensures that your content is secured. It is ready to dangle off your keychain, bag zipper, belt with the removable lobster claw. The nut is small enough to be worn as a pendant (without the claw). 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.
