Tagua Nuts are small but very hard and high density for the woodturner, particularly one who produces small projects like netsuke. It turns easily, without grain problems and sands and polishes to a satin luster. No finish is applied, except for final buffing with 0000 steel wool and wax. Tagua nut ivory is a seed from a South America palm which takes 15 years to grow up, and the nuts take 3 to 8 years to mature.
