This is a small acorn pendant box made out of Mun Ebony (Diospyros mun) with Olive Burl (Olea europaea) cap. Mun Ebony is one of the most beautiful ebony around, often decorated with wild streaks and figures. The wood is very fine grain and stable, ideal for threaded items. It is my favorite material for flat boxes. The dark bottom goes well with any other wood color, it also provide accent and contrast. Here, Mun was paired with equally fine grained Olive cap. Olive is a tree of many religious, cultural and economic significance. The leafy branches of olive are considered as a symbol of abundance, glory and peace. Olive oil also has been considered sacred and is till used in many religious ceremonies. The oil and fruit are important ingredients in many cuisines. Olive is the most mentioned tree in the Western sacred texts and literatures. And the wood is one of my favorite with it's extra fine grain and beautiful figure.
This small acorn box has a removable swivel lobster claw attachment for keychain, lanyard, zipper pull... The screw-on cap ensures that your content is secured. Great for memorial keepsake, small daily pills or any small things you want to have access on the go...It is also a unique gift since acorn is a symbol of good luck and prosperity.
