This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of Snakewood (Piratinera guianensis) with Yollilo Palm Nut (Raphia taedigera) cap. Snakewood is also known as Letter wood, Speckled wood, and Leopard wood. Considered to be the world’s rarest commercially available species and also the hardest timber. The density is so high the wood sinks in water. It is lustrous with a unique Viper-like pattern, hence the name Snakewood. The Yollilo palm nut adds it's own set of unique pattern to this striking acorn. It looks just like the Live Oak acorns that litter the creek behind my backyard!
A nice box for your valuables. The screw-on cap makes this nature inspired box extra special and ensures that your content is secured, good for jewelry, keepsake... Through the ages, people has given out acorns as a symbol of prosperity and luck. This one is a unique gift.
