Tagua Nut (also known as Vegetable Ivory) is carved into a baby turtle hatching from its egg!

Approximately 2 inches long & 1 1/2 inches high.

Each tagua nut is harvested by hand and will go thru 3 hardening processes in order for it to be carved.  Using tagua for a variety of products helps to preserve the tropical rainforest where they grow - helping to prevent the danger of being cut down for low quality farmland and cattle pastures. The tagua pieces provide a sustainable income and help local communities become stable. 

Purchasing tagua pieces is helping to preserve the Rainforest!
