Product Description

The Tagua nut when dried out can be carved just like elephant ivory; it is often used for beads, buttons, figurines and jewlery, and can be dyed. More recently, palm ivory has been used in the production of bagpipes

The kernels are picked up from the ground after the ripe fruit has detached from the tree and forest animals have taken care of the pericarp, or harvested when ripe and the pericarp manually removed. As the nut shrinks when it hardens a small hollow cavity can form in the centre.
It is often not possible to know whether the inside of the nut will have a small cavity in the centre until it is cut into. Therefore, when carving, it is common to either incorporate the hole or cavity into carvings or not carve deep enough to reach a potential cavity.
