This is a very pretty acorn shaped box made out of California Buckeye Burl (Aesculus californica) with Betelnut (Areca catechu) cap. Buckeye is one of my favorite species around here: beautiful leaves, massive flower heads, picturesque form, interesting fruit and bluish burl wood that looks like none other! The bluish stain Buckeye burl is something very special. It is one of the few wood that exhibit this kind of color, add the wild pattern of the burly wood and it is truly unique. Capped with another truly unique Betelnut for added visual effect. This is the local Valley Oak acorn with the elongated shape.
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 daily pills, cash stash, keepsake... Through the ages, people has given out acorns as a symbol of prosperity and luck. This one is a unique gift.
