Robinia coccinea Aubl.

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 known as wayruru (Aymara,[1] 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.
