LV-2207 Redbud Burl & Betelnut Acorn Pendant Box, Charm, Pill Holder-SCREW CAP

$ 58.00

This is a small acorn shaped box made out of Redbud Burl (Cercis canadensis) with Betelnut (Areca catechu) cap. Redbud is state tree of Oklahoma.  Also known as Judas Tree,  it is belived that Judas Iscariot hanged himself on the European version of the Redbud. Morbid information aside, this is a very showy ornamental with deep magenta pink flowers in profusion every spring. If you enter Yosemite through route 140 at the right time of the year, the Redbuds in full bloom along the Merced River is a sight to remember. It is rare to find a piece of this wood, let alone the burly form. I was fortunate to get a few blanks of this not often seen burl. It's a real beauty! Even in this tiny acorn, the burly figure looks awesome. Capped with the exotic looking Betelnut for added effect.

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.
