LV-2446 Purpleheart & Betelnut Acorn Pendant Box, Bag Charm, Keychain-SCREW CAP

LV-2446 Purpleheart & Betelnut Acorn Pendant Box, Bag Charm, Keychain-SCREW CAP

$ 65.00

This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Purpleheart (Peltogyne paniculata) with Betelnut (Areca catechu) cap. True to it's name, Purpleheart is a special wood that quickly turns purple after exposure. The color will deepen with time. I like the bright purple color of this wood very much, so I often come back to make something out of it. The trouble is purpleheart do not accept threading very well, so I have to struggle with it every time. Worth it, though. Betelnut is hard and dense with the unique pattern that is very well suited as an acorn cap. I really like this combination. This acorn is large enough to stash a rolled up bill.
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 (unless you wrap your pill). Through the ages, people has given out acorns as a symbol of prosperity and luck. This one is a unique gift.
