LV-3460 American Holly & Raffia Palm Nut Wooden Mushroom Box-THREADED

$ 75.00

This is a very special mushroom shaped box made out of American Holly (Illex opaca) with Raffia Palm Nut (Raphia australis) cap.  Holly is the whitest commercial wood.  It is the tree with red berries for holiday decoration.  It is the State Tree of Delaware.  To ontain the whitest timber, the tree need to be cut at night during a certain phase of the moon to minimize the amount of sap content within the wood and then dried carefully, so they said.  The Raphia nut, with it's random spots, makes a great mushroom cap.  Raphias are monster palms, with leaves up to 82 feet long! The longest leaves in the plant kingdom.  This nut came from a tree that was already death, since Raphia species only bloom once then the whole tree, or the flowering trunk, would die from the effort.  That's some fun fact for you regard this fun 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
