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) and are solid red (O. macrocalyx).

Huayruros are popular beading seeds in Peru. They are said to promote health and to bring luck to their wearers. They are commonly graded into three sizes, although because they are natural seeds, their size varies somewhat within the grades. Those of this offering average roughly 12 x 10 x 7 mm, with an irregular lentil shape. 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 increments. Each ounce includes about 60 seeds. Prices shown are per ounce.
