LV-2986  Purpleheart & Brownheart Acorn Pill Box, Engagement Ring Box-SCREW CAP

LV-2986 Purpleheart & Brownheart Acorn Pill Box, Engagement Ring Box-SCREW CAP

$ 89.00

This is a very special acorn box made out of Purpleheart (Peltogyne paniculata) with Brownheart (Vouacapoua americana) cap.  This is another acorn from the "Heart" series, since February is the month of the heart.  True to it's name, the South American Purpleheart is a special wood that quickly turns purple after exposure.  The color will deepen with time.  I like the bright purple color of this wood very much, so I often come back to make something out of it.   Brownheart is also a South American native with very nice brown tone and shimmering light streaks.  It is hard and lustrous, very popular as wood flooring and other applications where wear and tear are a concern.  It is not often seen in the US wood market.  

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.
