This small box of spalted Cascara buckthorn (Rhamnus purshiana) has lovely "picture frames" with cream, slate blue, and purple on the base and the lid. The colors extend completely around in a ribbon effect on both pieces.
The image at right shows the back side. The inside lid is domed, while the inner bottom is flat. When you open it you will see that the beautiful spalting is only skin deep.
