Dear all,
 
Leaves of Abrus precatorius used medicinally for gum disesaes. Seeds used to weighing gold in ancient times.

Abrus precatorious seeds are said to be poisinous.
Precatory-pea (Abrus precatorius) seeds contain a chemical called
abrin, which is highly toxic. A single well-masticated seed can kill
an adult human (Kingsbury 1964).

the seeds look beautiful but should be kept away from children.
