This is a beautiful acorn box made out of Pink Flame (Rinorea guianensis) with Betelnut (Areca catechu) cap. Pink Flame is a new and very rare timber from Peru. The species was just recently been identified. The heartwood of the female tree is capable of turning brilliant pink to dark red by some natural chemical processes. Although looks similar to box elder, this wood is much heavier, a lot harder, and more colorful. It is hard to believe that this rock-hard wood came from a tree in the same family as the dainty Violet flower.
