Tagua Nut Thin Slices: Teal Blue Tagua Slices *Central Hole*, 10pcs / Vegetable Ivory, Organic Beads, Eco Friendly Beads, Jewelry Supplies

Tagua Nut Thin Slices are our absolutely favorite! One slice can be drilled and use in so many ways, sometimes it is hard to pick a design to follow. These “Tagua Nut Thin Slices” are very cool to work with, they are light as a feather, thin yet very durable. You can literally use them in all kinds of jewelry, adornments, key chain, etc. The colors are absolutely gorgeous! Drilled in the center with a 2-2.5mm hole to fit thicker threads.

♥ Size: from 18-28mm – they come in several shapes x 2-2.5mm Hole x ~2mm thick

Tagua Nut Thin Slices vary from one to another, no two pieces are the same. We can get very close when matching for earrings, etc, but keep in mind that they are cut from several Tagua Nuts and will have a small variance.

All Tagua Beads, Tagua Slices and Tagua Nuts are tumbled and polished for a nice sheen. All beads are 100% handmade, no LACQUER or VARNISHING done to the pieces. You can go big without the weight using these Tagua Nut Thin Slices.

Our Tagua Nut Thin Slices are 100% handmade, hand cut and polished from the begging to the end by artisans in South America. The Tagua slices listed here have been cut from a polished nut and will have a think brown edge, which is the natural bark from the Tagua Nuts. Tagua Slices also present a marbled design in the center what gives them a great and unique look. The marbled effect is natural and is nothing more than the “growth rings” that are accentuated with the heat. The same thing is shown in wooden pieces.

WHAT’S TAGUA:

In a short description, Tagua Nut, also known as Vegetable Ivory, is the seed that comes from Phytelephas Macrocarpa palm tree that grows in the tropical rainforest of South America. Tagua nuts grow in large spike clusters, reminding a honey cone with many nuts inside. They are pure cellulose and before the nuts mature, they are soft and can be eaten – they taste just like a fresh coconut. I have tasted them!

Many Tagua nuts present a crack in the center due to the drying process and the density is very close to the density of ANIMAL IVORY. Tagua is replacing the slaughter of mammal ivory (elephants and other) in the textile and fashion industries. In one year, one Tagua Nut palm produces as much ivory as an average female African elephant. No HARM is done to the nature and the Tagua Nut production market employs hundreds of families.
