LV-3406 Threaded Mushroom Pill, Jewelry Box from Persimmon Wood and Golden Rain Tree

LV-3406 Threaded Mushroom Pill, Jewelry Box from Persimmon Wood and Golden Rain Tree

$ 75.00

This is a very special mushroom shaped box made out of Persimmon (Diospyros virginiana) with Golden Rain (Koelreuteria paniculata) cap. This is a new species of mushroom with two interestingly local timbers. Persimmon is in the same family with ebony.  You can see that the wood ebonized in a few black areas, but it never go completely black like the other ebonies.  Golden Rain was named from it's yellow panicles of flower and then seed pods. The cap is from salvaged timber of tree trimming around my place. I got two of these street trees in front of my house and a persimmon in the backyard. This species is a resilient one. I have been battling unwanted seedlings from these trees every year. I was surprise to see that this species holds its bark well and has a beautiful grain, so here it is another delicious mushroom.

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.
