This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Red Gum Burl (Eucalyptus camaldulensis) with Chechen (Metopium brownei) cap.  From Australia, Red Gum is one of the Eucalyptus species with not-often-seen burl.  The tree is widely grown as ornamentals and is a good pollen source for honey production.  The burl wood looks kinda plain at first, but it turned out to be a beauty, with a unique light pink tint that goes well with the reddish brown cap.  This is a larger acorn at ~3" in diameter.

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.
