LV-3373 Bocote & Black Chacate Acorn Pill Box, Engagement Ring Box-SCREW CAP

$ 98.00

This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Bocote (Cordia elaeagnoides) with Black Chacate (Guibourtia conjugata) cap.  Bocote is in the same family with Ziricote.  The figure can also be very striking with contrasting dark and light stripes, but the lighter part will eventually darken.  The wood is dense and polished up silky smooth.  Also called Tsots, Black Chacate is from Mozambique and other E. African & S. African locales. It is dark brown with shimmering lighter streaks. Very fine grain and heavy. It is such a handsome dark wood that turned like a dream and polished up like glass!  

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.
