LV-2581 Giant Sequoia with Black Walnut Burl Acorn Jewelry, Ring Box, Pill Box-SCREW CAP

$ 115.00

This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Giant Sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum) with Black Walnut Burl (Juglans negra) cap. Here is an acorn made out of something truly special. A California treasure, the giant sequoia is a tree of superlatives: it is the largest living thing (total 2100 tons from a single tree), one of the oldest living thing (3,500+ years old), thickess bark (3+ ft)...and the most magnificent the way it towers over you. For such a humongous tree, it's timber is rarely seen. Due to it's brittleness, the wood is not used as a commercial timber. Here I have a piece of an old grown giant, with it's distinctive red, mature hardwood. It is difficult to thread, requiring an extra stabilization step. However, I was surprise to see it polished up nicely and even has a line of chatoyancy. Capped with a high figured, California grown dark walnut burl, this acorn is a true gift from my home state. 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): 2-1/4" x 2-5/8" PLEASE READ:
