This seed comes from the palm species Phytelephas. Phytelephas comes from the Greek words phyton, which means plant, and elephas meaning elephant. The white hard seeds of this genus are also known as vegetable ivory, as the seeds are very similar in structure to elephant ivory and can also be carved into jewelry. Tagua palm tree grows in the tropical rainforests of South America.
