LV-2763 Black Chacate & Greenheart Acorn Jewelry, Ring Box, Pill Box-SCREW CAP

$ 89.00

This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Black Chacate (Guibourtia conjugata) with Greenheart (Chlorocardium rodiei) cap.  Also called Tsots, this species is from Mozambique and other E. African & S. African locales. It is dark brown with shimmering lighter streaks. Very fine grain and heavy. My first time working with this wood, and it is love at first sight.  Such handsome dark wood that turned like a dream and polished up like glass!  The cap is also a very special wood with an olive green tint.  Shaped like a fat, elongated Valley Oak acorn, this smooth and heavy nut is one of my favorite!

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.
