Peruvian Items & Real Gold
* Welcome to Huayruro Wasi! Here we are huayruro obsessed!:) *
Huayruro Seeds – also known as Peonia Seed, Crab’s Eye, Lady Bug Seed, Ormosia coccinea – have been long used for its spiritual powers to attract good luck. These seeds are originally from the Amazons in South America. According to Learn About Peru,
“The Huayruro plant is native to Peru, and has been an important part of Peruvian culture for centuries. Huayruro seeds are found in pods in the tall trees of the Peruvian rainforest. The red and black seeds are said to bring good fortune and abundance, while warding off negative energy. The mixture of black and red on the seeds is also said to bring balance.”
Other names are: chumico, wayruros, huairuro, peronilla, and Regaliz americano, panacoco, Ormosia coccinea.
It grows mainly on the Tropical Amazon in Peru, but is found growing all throughout South America and other central American countries, even in Africa, with different names. Its scientific name is Ormosia coccinea. (Note: If you are looking for a specific variety, you may have to find them under different names. As a Peruvian native myself, I refer to these seeds as “semilla de Huayruro,” which just means Huayruro seed. Although they may look alike, seeds from other countries may be slightly different based on climate and weather of each country).
In many parts of the world, the Huayruro is used in jewelry to bring good luck to its wearer, such as necklaces, bracelets, rings, and key chains. Others keep them in jars to attract good vibes. These beautiful, elegant and exotic seeds are believed to bring good luck to its owner, and there is no doubt about it! My customers are always 100% pleased with their seeds, and I have gotten good luck in my huayruro business!
Special requests: Some of my happy customers have requested the huayruro sold as a seed instead of just jewelry for spiritual purposes. If you have any special requests, like small/medium/large huayruro seeds, male or female, with or without hole, or larger quantities and lots of seeds, please email me at [email protected]
They come in 3 different sizes, small, medium to large. Below is a comparison image (the large kind are compared with a quarter; the small/baby and medium are compared with a dime).

What are HUAYRURO SEEDS? Cientifically known as ORMOSIA COCCINEA
The huayruro seeds generally symbolizes just about the same in every culture. Rather than simply bringing good luck and warding off negative energies, I’ve also heard that the huayruro seed is a symbol for the origin from which all living beings are derived: plants, animals and even humans. That’s why some believe the seed to symbolize fertility and abundance. Because of the seed’s emblematic nature, they have played an important role in my culture and life.
Let me also share with you the story behind the huayruros not only for Peruvians but for many different countries around the world.
It is been said the solid red seeds are to be female
The red and black are considered male
Not only is this seed beautiful in color, but it is also unique in shape and texture. Each of them may look alike but they are never exactly the same. The native Peruvians believe the seed brings positive energy, happiness, fertility, good luck and wards off negative energy. They also make huayruro bracelets for newborns to help keep them safe from harm. Perhaps due to the two colors on the seed, that’s why native Peruvians believe the seed to have dual properties: give the positive and ward off the negative.

Not only does the huayruro seed belong to my Peruvian culture, other cultures signify it as well.
In France, the French call the seed Panacoco. They believe the seeds attracts wealth and abundance as well as ward off negative energy.
In Barbados, the huayruro is called Crab Eye or Sailor’s Valentine. I find the Sailor’s Valentine name interesting because in the 1880′s when English and American sailor’s would embark on their voyage back home, they would take these seeds as souvenirs and tokens of love to their wives or girlfriends.
In Puerto Rico, they are called peonias – believed to intensify the power of whatever they touched.
Here’s a list of other countries around the world and what they call the seed:
- Brazil- Tintoria & Olheo de cabra
- Costa Rica- Nene/Chumico
- Trinidad and Tobago, French Guiana, Jamaica- Jambee Beads
- Colombia- Chochos
