This is a small acorn box made out of Vitex Burl (Vitex gigantea) with Betelnut (Areca catechu) cap. From SE Asia, Vitex burl is a lesser known burl wood, not often available. I don't know much about this rarity, except it looks awesome with swirly figures and subtle color variation. It is a very dense burl, capable of a beautiful finish. Capped with patterned betelnut for contrast, this acorn is a real gem.
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. Good for small daily pills, keepsake, or anything you want to carry around while on the go...Not recommended for oil/liquid, or long term storage of emergency pill, since I don't know how air/water tight the closure is.
