LV-2560 Verawood & Chechen 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 Chechen (Metopium brownei) 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 super hard and heavy. The wood is yellowish brown when freshly cut, but quickly turn green with light exposure. This is one of a very few woods that gets greener as it ages! Capped with Chechen, also known as Chechem, Caribbean Rosewood and Black Poisonwood due to the urushiol in its bark, which can cause contact dermititis on one's skin when touched. Don't worry, only the sap is sinister, the timber is perfectly safe and is a highly valued wood in South America and West Indies. Of course, it is their rosewood equivalent. 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. Dimension (largest diameter x height): 1-7/8" x 2-1/8" PLEASE READ:
