Description
Native Americans throughout the Amazon basin have long used the seeds and nuts of a variety of trees and plants make necklaces, bracelets and other jewelry. Those of this offering are of the Amazonian huayruro plant (Ormosia spp.), of the folk variety called hembra (female) but unlike other huayruro hembra seeds these are more purple than red.

Huayruros are popular beading seeds in Peru. They are said to promote health and to bring luck to their wearers. Those of this offering are relatively elongated, roughly 15 x 10 x 7 mm. They were hand-drilled by Peruvian crafts people. The holes run horizontally, along the length of the seeds, and are small, about 1 mm or less in diameter.

These seeds are sold by weight, in one-ounce units. Each ounce includes about 16 seeds. Prices shown are per ounce, with discounts for larger volumes.
