Caption: Argan tree (Argania spinosa) nuts. These nuts (covered in a green pith) are the source of argan oil, an oil used for its nutritional, cosmetic and medicinal properties. The argan tree is endemic to south-western Morocco, and the oil is produced by traditional means by the Berber population in the region. The outer covering (pith) is stripped from the central stone or nut. This is then cracked to obtain the seeds, which are roasted and ground to extract the oil. Photographed in Morocco.
