Tagua Nuts per 5
Also known as vegetable or palm ivory, these nuts can be turned or carved into buttons, beads, finials, jewellery and the like.
As the nuts are dried and shrink, a cavity forms in the centre and it is not possible to judge the size or shape of this until it is exposed.
To mount for turning, cut a flat on the end (or cut in half to show the cavity) then glue it to a waste chuck block. It cuts like plastic and will take the very finest detail.
These nuts are among the largest we have seen, averaging 16 to the kilo.
Shapes vary but they average approximately from 50mm to 70mm long and we are selling them in packs of five.
