This is a tiny slim threaded holder made out of Cocuswood (Brya ebenus) with Betelnut (Areca catechu) cap. Cocuswood is an extremely rare species found in Cuba, Jamaica, and the Dominican Republic. Also called Green, Brown, or West Indian Ebony. The heartwood is brownish-yellow to dark brown often with a greenish tinge. This particular piece of wood has an incredible color mix. The colors and sheen are very difficult to photograph and it looks a lot more interesting in person. The hard and heavy wood is well known for its use in woodwinds such as flutes, piccolos, and bagpipes because of its fine and uniform grain, its beautiful coloring and its resonance. The Betel Nut cap add a decorative touch to this container.
The crew-on cap makes this holder extra special and ensures that your content is secured. Good for small daily pills, memorial keepsake.
