LV-3553 Agarita Burl & Betelnut Acorn Pendant Box, Pill Fob-SCREW CAP

LV-3553 Agarita Burl & Betelnut Acorn Pendant Box, Pill Fob-SCREW CAP

$ 68.00

This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Agarita Burl (Mahonia trifoliolata) with Betelnut (Areca catechu) cap. Texas Agarita is a domestic species with very bright yellow wood that is not often seen. This piece was from a root burl section of the shrub, the only part large enough for turning. The bright yellow wood yield a dye, and the red berries from the shrub is edible. This is a truly special collector's item! Capped with the uniquely patterned betelnut for added visual interest.

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.
