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.
