LV-3425 Acorn Pendant Box, Charm, Pill Holder from Nagusta Burl & Red Palm-SCREW CAP

LV-3425 Acorn Pendant Box, Charm, Pill Holder from Nagusta Burl & Red Palm-SCREW CAP

$ 60.00

This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Nagusta Burl (Terminalia amazonia) with Red Palm (Cocos nucifera) cap. Also called Canxan Negro or Ironwood Burl (not to be confused with the Desert Ironwood), Nargusta is a tropical hardwood species with a wide range throughout Central and northern South America. Althouh considered a commercial timber, I have never seen the timber imported to the US; only the burly form is sometimes available. It is very dense and pretty with subtle multi-color swirls. This acorn is capped with the uniquely patterned cross-cut red palm.  Red palm is actually the wood of the Coconut Tree. It is even harder to thread than the black palm, but the pattern and color can be found no where else, to I have to go throught the trouble. 

A nice box for your valuables. The screw-on cap makes this nature inspired box extra special and ensures that your content is secured. It is ready to dangle off your keychain, bag zipper, belt with the removable lobster claw. The nut is small enough to be worn as a pendant (without the claw). Good for small daily pills, keepsake...Not recommended for long term storage of emergency pill, since I don't know how air/water tight the closure is. Through the ages, people has given out acorns as a symbol of prosperity and luck. This one is a unique gift.
