Handmade necklace with Yin Yang amulet.
This Buddhist necklace has a simple cord with an amulet made from the taugua nut with bodhi wood inlay.
Tagua is similar to ivory, but comes from a nut. The Yin half of the Yin Yang symbol is one made from the wood of the Bodhi tree.
In Buddhism, the bodhi tree is a sacred tree because Gautama Buddha, the founder of Buddhism, achieved enlightenment under a Bodhi tree.
