LV-2403 Verawood & Mun Ebony Acorn Jewelry Box, Pill Box, Trinket Box-SCREW CAP

$ 78.00

This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Verawood (Bulnesia sarmientoi) with Mun Ebony (Diopsyros mun) cap. Another interesting acorn that will eventually turns dark green. You can see the exposed part of the acorn body already turned green while the interior part still remains yellow. A fine, hard and heavy wood (also known as Argentine Lignum Vitae) with a nice green patina make this timber truly special. 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 tint make this ebony special, the wood is very stable, dimensionally. What's more, it was the reason why I became a woodturner: All I wanted was a couple of Mun Ebony chopsticks, which we used to have back when I was a kid. Found none, so I set out to make a few for myself. I never expected the chopsticks to morph into so many different shapes and sizes! This one looks just like a still-green acorn.
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.
