Amazonian Accent

Featuring a turquoise-hued tagua nut, this candle holder offers a touch of organic elegance to your table. The base is sand-cast iron, accented with a colorfully dyed nut sustainably harvested by the indigenous Embera people of the Amazon. Tagua is often called 'vegetable ivory,' as it's a renewable, cruelty-free alternative to elephant ivory. Sold individually, these candle holders make captivating contemporary decor in groupings of two or more. Slender beeswax candle included (refills also available). Handmade by Luis Marquez in Texas.

Due to the nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.
