Its use among the people of the Amazon goes back millennia and is worn to bring prosperity, good luck, fertility and protection. The seed's natural color is a bright red color. These eaarrings are beautifully handmade in Colombia. Any seed could be hazardous and should not be put in the mouth or given to small children or pets.
