This is a very cute mushroom threaded box made out of Persimmon (Diospyros virginiana) with Betelnut (Areca catechu) cap. Persimmon is a true ebony species, the only native American ebony. It is heavy, hard and polishes well. The timber is not all that common commercially. The uniform wood works well as a mushroom stalk. What's fun about this mushroom is the Betel nut cap. The unique pattern looks so interesting as a mushroom cap. I believe there is an edible species of mushroom with a cap similar to this.
This threaded box can be used to hold small valuables...The screw-on cap ensured that your content is secured; also serves as a unique gift for nature lovers.
