LV-2971  Verawood & Brown Ebony Wooden Acorn Jewelry, Ring Box, Pill Box-SCREW CAP

LV-2971 Verawood & Brown Ebony Wooden Acorn Jewelry, Ring Box, Pill Box-SCREW CAP

$ 120.00

This is a nice acorn shaped box made out of Figured Verawood (Bulnesia sarmientoi) with Brown Ebony (Caesalpinia paraguariensis) cap.  I use Verawood a lot in my design, but this is the first time I came across a knotty piece with such nice figure!  Vera is also known as Argentine Lignum Vitae due to the similar property and the ability to develop a green patina with light exposure.  I like to call it Verawood because it is simply a shorter name and because the wood is a beautiful timber all by itself without the need for the "Lignum" reference.  A similar story for Brown Ebony:  also from Argentina, Brown Ebony features dark chocolate brown tones with a pleasing grain pattern. It is not the true ebony species but has characteristics similar to true ebony: very stable, will not change color over time and polishes very nicely. 

Dimension (largest diameter x height): 2" x 2-1/2"
