LV-2224 Ancient Kauri & Verawood Acorn Jewelry Box, Pill Box, Trinket Box-SCREW CAP

$ 158.00

This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Ancient Kauri (Agathis australis) with Verawood (Bulnesia sarmientoi) cap. For those who are not familiar with the Kauri, this is the oldest workable wood in the world, say more than 50,000 years, that was when the dinosaurs still roam the earth.  So, it's more than ancient, it's prehistoric! It is another case of trees falling en-masse into swamps and got sort of mummified.  This wood is very soft but sand and finish well. There is a characteristic shimmering call "white bait" unique to Kauri. Capped with a cross-cut Verawood, with its own shimmer. The green wood compliments the olive color of the nut extremely well. This is a special acorn for those who want some organic thing older than humankind itself.

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 a symbol of prosperity and luck. This one is a unique gift.
