LV-3951 Acorn Pendant Box, Charm, Pill Holder from Buckeye Burl & Ebony-SCREW CAP

$ 65.00

This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Buckeye Burl (Aesculus californica) with Mun Ebony (Diospyros mun) cap. Buckeye trees are easy to spot now with it's dendriltic silvery branches adorned by multitude of dangling fruits, like ornaments on a X-mas tree. This is one of my favorite species around here: beautiful leaves, massive flower heads, picturesque form, interesting fruit...The burly wood of this local species can not look more exotic. The tendency of this wood to develop a natural bluish stain set it apart from other timbers. The dark cap enhances the beauty of this wild nut without distracting from it's beauty.

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.
