Tagua nuts are a large nut harvested from palm trees that grow naturally in swamps in the Amazon jungle in Northern and Central South America. The nuts are dried, sliced, polished and dyed and used to create jewelry. Using hard seeds and nuts such as tagua helps to preserve the rainforest as it provides a sustainable, renewable and valuable alternative to mining or clearing the rainforest for farming purposes.
