LV-2813 Yellow box Burl & Hala Acorn Pendant Box, Pill Fob, Secret Compartment-SCREW CAP

$ 65.00

This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Yellow Box Burl (Eucalyptus melliodora) with Hala (Pandanus chamissonis) cap.  An interesting Eucalyptus species from down under, the famed Yellow Box has perfumed, cream coloured blossoms which are a source of honey with excellent taste (its botanical name Melliodora means honey-scented).  The wood is as dense as boxwood, thus the common name.  The burl is pretty, loaded with eyes and swirls, as seen even in this tiny acorn.  Hala is one of the more common seashore plants in the islands. Fruits are edible and the long leaves contain valuable fiber used for weaving. The fruit resembles a pineapple.  The wood looks like red palm, but brighter in color and harder.  Only very old tree form the woody outer ring on it's trunk, thus this timber is not common and only available as small pen blanks.  The polka-dot pattern of the Hala adds a lot of visual interest to this bright acorn.

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.
