LV-3090 Verawood & Tamboti Acorn Pill Box, Jewelry, Engagement Ring Box-SCREW CAP

$ 95.00

This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Verawood (Bulnesia sarmientoi) with Tamboti (Spirostachys africanus) 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.  The green tint depends on ambient light to develop, so if you store it in the dark, it will not be as green.  Tamboti is a lustrous timber from Africa.  Also known as African sandalwood, the oily wood smells good when work but the scent does not persist for as long as true sandalwood. In contrast, Verawood has it's own spicy scent which persists.

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.
