The images are of a seed pod that came, either from Malta or Cyprus. It is about 60mm diameter and extremely hard. I had to take a hammer to it for it to open. Inside were many small flat ,slightly fluffy heart shaped seeds.

Might anybody recognize it please?

Looks a lot like a Jacaranda seed pod.


Image from wikimedia. Looks like Jacaranda is native to Malta, and at least grows in Cyprus. It's also common in the San Francisco area.
