LV-2530 Verawood & Royal Palm Acorn Pendant Box, Bag Charm, Keychain-SCREW CAP

$ 65.00

This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Verawood (Bulnesia sarmientoi) with Royal Palm (Roystonea regia) cap. I like to have an inventory of colorful items for my shop and nothing brighten up the lot better than the unusual, green tinted Verawood. A relative of Lignum Vitae, this timber is hard and heavy. The green color will deepen with time. This is one of a very few woods that gets greener as it ages! The cap is what makes this acorn even more special. Royal palm is a common ornamental palm, but the "wood" is seldom utilized. Due to it's porous, stringy nature, it is the most difficult thing to cut thread with. It took me 4x longer to carefully thread and shape this cap than with another well behaved hardwood. However, the shimmering result is totally worth it. So, once in a while, when I feel up to the challenge... 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. Dimension (largest diameter x height): 7/8" x 1-3/8" PLEASE READ:
