Hi, I saw a necklace in Nubia made of tree seeds and nuts. They were usually painted different colors. I think one of the nuts was from the Dom tree. I was told that it was given to a newborn child and each of the nuts had different meanings. Can you tell me what the other nuts are and what they symbolize or where I can find more information on this necklace? Thank you!
