It reminds me of Aleurites molucana, but I'm not 100% sure because of the colour of the seeds.

Don't know what the seeds in the photo are, but do know they are definitely not Aleurites moluccana (kukui nut, aka candlenut)

Do you have any suggestions in germinating such a hard type of seed?

Soak overnight in warm water.
