    I have no idea what this little canister is or what it is for, but it has a whitish/grayish powder inside it. It's very well-made, judging by the very fine cap screw threads - water tight. Does anyone know what it is? The metalwork appears to be from India or somewhere in that part of the world.

      Ummm did you dump ashes out of it? It looks like what I thought it was. Here's a similar example..

      That was my thought exactly! Portions of ashes can be given to loved ones in little containers such as this.

      that's exactly what it is! and that explains the whitish / greyish powder inside. i'm a bit grossed out. my sweet dog lucy died a couple months ago and i carried a little box with her ashes in it and i put some in her favorite camping places. i cannot imagine carrying them around forever. but i miss her every single day.
