Ormosia coccinea (Aubl.) Jacks.

Brief Summary

    Ormosia coccinea: Brief Summary
    provided by wikipedia

    Ormosia coccinea is a plant that grows throughout the South Eastern North American countries, and all throughout South America. It produces beautiful red seeds with one black spot covering one-third of its surface. These seeds are used for jewelry and other decorative purposes. The seeds are poisonous if eaten.

    The seeds are known as wayruru (Aymara, also spelled huayruro, huayruru, wayruro) in Peru, where villagers believe them to be powerful good luck charms[citation needed], and nene or chumico in Costa Rica. A French name is panacoco, but this more often applies to Swartzia tomentosa.
