Betel nuts and limes were contained in this pierced metal box. Betel nut is taken in many areas of the world as a narcotic, a substance that relieves pain and alters mood and behaviour. It is often mixed with ingredients such as lime to produce feelings of mild euphoria. Too much can have a sedative effect. Betel nut chewers are recognisable by the distinctive red staining on their teeth, mouth and gums.
