Tagua nut also called ‘ivory nut’ or ‘vegetable ivory’ is the dried seedpod of the Tagua Palm tree or Phytelephas Macrocarpa endemic to the Amazon basin.
In addition to protecting animal ivory, tagua products help preserve tropical rain forests by providing a sustainable income for "ribeirinhos" population that were before mining gold or working on illegal wood cut.
The indigenous people of South America used Tagua to represent the feminine because of its great magnet-like romantic energy. Each member of the tribe was given a tagua pendant to wear around his or her neck. The natives believed that persons wearing tagua would live in harmony and always be loved by their family and friends. Seed pods are peeled, sliced, shaped or carved and dyed in different colors enhancing natural patterns.
