LV-3903 Cocuswood &  Red Palm Acorn Ring Box, Pill Box-SCREW CAP

LV-3903 Cocuswood & Red Palm Acorn Ring Box, Pill Box-SCREW CAP

$ 85.00

This is a very cute mini acorn shaped box made out of Cocuswood (Brya ebenus) with Red Palm (Cocos nucifera) cap. Cocus is an extremely rare species is 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. It is usually beautifully veined with darker streaks. The wood is hard and heavy. It 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. Red Palm is an interesting species, commonly known as the coconut tree. Here, the dark and light fibers intermingled to form interesting dots when cross cut. The wood is difficult to work with and to thread, but where else can I find such an eye-catching pattern

The screw-on cap ensures that your content is secured. Good for any tiny things you want to keep near and dear, or have access to on the go...Through the ages, acorns have been given for luck, prosperity and as a symbol of nature's abundance. This little acorn is a unique gift.
