Hard nut to crack!

Pindan walnut, or Kalumburu almond. A native to the north west. Although we collected some Kalumburu almonds, which can be viable for many months even years, and collected from the base of the tree. Was such a hard nut to crack, the engineering department helped me out with the vice! (Thanks Scotty) So much work for such a little almond I could only imagine the time it would take for the indigenous to use their stone hammers to crack this nut open. Watch the little video on face book to see how we managed to crack the nut.
