LV-2708  Buckeye Burl  & Palm Nut Acorn Pendant Box-SCREW CAP

LV-2708 Buckeye Burl & Palm Nut Acorn Pendant Box-SCREW CAP

$ 65.00

This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Buckeye Burl (Aesculus californica) with Nubian Palm Nut (Medemia argun) cap.   This unusual acorn looks like it was made from gemstone instead of a wood and a palm nut. Buckeye is a monotypic, local species here in California.  At this time, the leaves almost all fall off, leaving a bunch of dangling fruits.  The tree itself is weird, the bluish burl wood is unlike any other.  The cap is also made from a nut of a weird palm.  Nubian palm is native only to the arid desert of Sudan and thought to be extinct until recently.  The fruits were found buried in ancient Egyptian tombs, indicating that they must have some important role in ancient culture.  The nut is translucent with dark marking, adding an exotic touch to this nut.

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. Through the ages, people has given out acorns as a symbol of prosperity and luck. This one is a unique gift.
