This is a mini acorn shaped box made out of Pink Ivory (Berchemia zeyheri) with Lignum Vitae (Guiacum officinale) cap. Pink Ivory is an exotic wood native to Southern Africa, and is one of the most rare and beautiful woods in the world. The color ranges from salmon to pink to dark red, but tend to deepen with time. This acorn was made from a high grade timber with nice pink tone. Genuine Lignum Vitae is quite famous for being "the densest wood in the world"., "Lignum Vitae" is Latin for "Wood of Life." Official National Flower of Jamaica, the timber is now rare and expensive. This acorn combines top notch timbers from two continents.
This acorn is great to wear as memorial keepsake pendant. I am not sure what else you can hold with this tiny acorn, maybe just a small daily pill, or a tiny prayer scroll. 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.
