LV-2972 Ironwood & Greebheart Wooden Acorn Jewelry, Ring Box, Pill Box-SCREW CAP

$ 89.00

This is a nice acorn shaped box made out of Desert Ironwood (Olneya tesota) with Greenheart (Chlorocardium rodiei) cap.  Yes, this wood is hard and heavy like a piece of iron, but with the shimmering of gold and the smoothness of glass when polished. Desert Ironwood is probably the nicest looking wood from North America. The Native American believes that the wood will bring luck and good health to the people who carries it.  From South America, Greenheart is a wood of extremes. Overall, it’s probably the strongest wood in the entire world when it comes to crushing strenght. It also has exceptional rot resistance and weathering characteristics, especially in marine environments.  This is one tough acorn from two precious timbers.

Dimension (largest diameter x height): 1-5/8" x 3-1/8"
