If you both love the rain forest and keeping animal ivory on real animals where it belongs, you'll love our handcarved Tagua Raindrop Pendant from Ecuador.
Tagua nut, a renewable rain forest 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 1/2 inches long
- Similar to animal ivory, tagua will gently darken or antique over time
Handmade in Ecuador and fair trade imported.
