This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Purpleheart (Peltogyne paniculata) with Verawood (Bulnesia sarmientoi) cap. Purpleheart is a striking wood with the unusual color. The timber is brown when freshly cut but oxidizes to a bright violet purple and eventually to a dark purple with age. Verawood is another one with unusual color. It turns from golden yellow to dark green upon exposure to sunlight. This acorn combines these chameleons of the timber world. The colors also go together exceptionally well and is a recurrent theme in my design. This interesting acorn has the deepest purple and darkest green cap of all. The colors look so unreal, yet they are all natural!
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 symbol of prosperity and luck. This one is a unique gift.
