Common Coco de Mer seeds are the seeds of the Coco de Mer palm tree (Lodoicea maldivica), a rare and protected species native to the Seychelles islands. These unique seeds, known for their distinctive shape resembling a double coconut, are prized for their rarity and cultural significance. With a hard outer shell and considerable weight, Coco de Mer seeds are often collected as collectibles or used for decorative purposes due to their intriguing appearance. Considered symbols of fertility in certain cultures, these seeds hold a mystical allure and are believed to possess aphrodisiac properties. Due to their protected status, Coco de Mer seeds are tightly regulated, and exporting them from the Seychelles requires proper permits. They are highly sought after by collectors worldwide, serving as captivating additions to botanical collections and natural history displays.
