LV-2644 Black & White Ebony and Blackwood Acorn Jewelry, Ring, Pill Box, Trinket-SCREW CAP

$ 98.00

This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Black & White Ebony (Diospyros embryopteris) with African Blackwood (Dalbergia melanoxylon) cap.  Black & White Ebony is a wood like no other: The contrast is striking, the wild pattern is even more extravagant. This acorn was turned cross-grain to show off this special figure.  This species is a true ebony, but it can not make up its mind to whether to turn black or not, so it ebonized in a weird pattern instead.  On the other hand, African Blackwood is a true rosewood that seriously live up to it's name.  Here I have a true ebony species that isn't black, and a true rosewood so dark that it looks like an ebony. Together, they made a very interesting acorn. I like this one!

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.
