LV-3162 Desert Ironwood & Chechen Wooden Acorn Pill Box, Jewelry Box -SCREW CAP

$ 135.00

This is a decent sized acorn shaped box made out of Desert Ironwood (Olneya tesota) with Chechen (Metopium brownei) cap.  I have here a nut from a precious North America timber capped with an equally gorgeous timber from Central America.  Desert Ironwood is probably the nicest looking domestic wood,  very hard, heavy, polished up to a glassy finish and the swirly grain shimmers like gold.  The American Indian believes that the wood will bring luck and good health to the people who carries it. Chechen is also known as Carribean Rosewood or Black Poison wood due to its toxic sap, which turns black and causes skin rash. However, the wood itself is safe to handle (otherwise, i would have to quarduple the price if I got a skin rash everytime I make something out of this timber).  This beautiful wood with its subtle color mix is valued for veneer, furniture, cabinetry, flooring, turned objects, and small specialty wood items.  i like this one!

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.
