This is a very pretty persimmon box made out of Persimmon (Diospyros virginiana) with Verawood (Bulnesia sarmientoi) cap. Persimmon is a true ebony species, the only native American ebony. It is heavy, hard and polishes well. You can see some random dots of ebonized wood, The timber is not all that common commercially. I like to see persimmon tree in the late fall with bright, cheerful orange fruits hanging from leafless branches. I like to eat them, too! It is only natural that I make a persimmon from this wood. Also known as Fruit of the Gods, persimmon is the symbol of joy in China, and triumph in Japan.
A nice box for your valuables, about the size of a real persimmon. The screw-on cap makes this nature inspired box extra special and ensures that your content is secured, good for jewelry, keepsake... Great as gift for the symbolic meaning of the fruit.
