You both love the rainforest and keeping animal ivory on real animals where it belongs, so you'll love our handcarved Tagua Pink Heart Pendant from Ecuador.
Tagua nut, a renewable rainforest seed that grows from the Amazon's Tagua Palm Tree, is widely regarded as vegetable ivory for its likeness to real animal ivory, but with animal and habitat-friendly properties. With the growing scarcity of animal ivory, Tagua has become a highly valued commodity by artisans and consumers alike.
Pendant measures 1 1/2 inches x 1 1/2 inches x 18 inches long
Pink color is achieved by boiling and other natural techniques that enhance the nut's natural beauty
