This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Verawood (Bulnesia sarmientoi) with Black Palm (Borassus flabellifer) cap. Related to Lignum Vitae, Verawood is very hard, heavy and is one of the few timbers that can develop a green patina as it ages. I really like this timber for it's unusual color and use it often in my organic designs. The Black Palm is the national tree of Cambodia. I specially like this wood as acorn cap since the dark color and the pattern are just perfect. Not very easy to thread due to the stringy nature of the wood, but well worth the effort! I really like the color combination and the shape of this one!
A nice box for your valuables. The screw-on cap makes this nature inspired box extra special and ensures that your content is secured. Good for small daily pills, keepsake... Not recommended for long term storage of emergency pill, since I don't know how air/water tight the closure is. Through the ages, people has given out acorns as a symbol of prosperity and luck. This one is a unique gift.
