LV-2978 Poinsettia & Greenheart Acorn Pill Box, Engagement Ring Box-SCREW CAP

$ 89.00

This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Poinsettia (Euphorbia pulcherrima) with Greenheart (Chlorocardium rodiei) cap.  Poinsettia, known as Flores de Noche Buena (Flowers of the Holy Night), is a culturally and commercially important plant species indigenous to Mexico and Central America. It is particularly well known for its red and green foliage and is widely used in Christmas floral displays.  Legend of a simple weed miraculously transformed into the first poinsettia plant on Christmas Eve was responsible for turning this plant to a Christmas symbol.  I bet you did not know that this "house plant" can grow into a decent sized tree, yielding solid wood for my turning pleasure!  The cap is also a very special wood with an olive green tint.  This uncommon nut is one of my favorite!

A nice box for your valuables. The screw-on cap ensures that your content is secured, good for  small jewelry, keepsake... Thought the ages, people has given out acorns as a symbol of prosperity and luck. This one is a unique gift.
