LV-2305 Acorn Pendant Box, Charm, Pill Holder from Yellow Box Burl & Ironwood-SCREW CAP

$ 58.00

This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Yellow Box Burl (Eucalyptus melliodora) with Desert Ironwood (Olneya tesota) cap. An interesting Eucalyptus species from down under, the famed Yellow Box has perfumed, cream coloured blossoms which are a source of honey with excellent taste (its botanical name Melliodora means honey-scented). The wood is as dense as boxwood, thus the common name. The burl is rare, loaded with figure and dense enough for a direct thread. Capped with Desert Ironwood. This timber is hard and heavy like a piece of iron, but with the shimmering of gold and the smoothness of glass when polished. Desert Ironwood is probably the nicest looking wood, and is considered one of the only two precious timbers from North America. The American Indian believes that the wood will bring luck and good health to the people who carries it.
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.
