any guesses?

I think these vein like lines are gorgeous and the color so intense while hidden within the pulpy shrunken pod.  It is nutmeg!  (courtesy of my Mom's friend who brought it back from Jamaica).  The red and gold covering is the mace, also a spice, and beneath there is a thin shell which cracks off and you are left with the nutmeg for grating.  Beautiful.


  1. WOW! I had no idea a nutmeg looked like that inside! Beautiful!!!
