Gidee-gidee, Jequirity bean, Rosary pea, Precatory bean
Well Chewed or broken seeds are toxic when ingested. One seed contains sufficient toxin to kill an adult. However, if the seed remains unbroken then the toxin may not be released. Symptoms can include nausea, vomiting, severe diarrhoea, disorientation and death. Symptoms may be rapid or delayed 1–3 days.
As told to me during my childhood that this seed is used by jewelers to measure precious metals and is called "Ratti". A ratti is a traditional Indian unit of mass measurement, and has now been standardized[citation needed] as 0.12125 gram. It was measured by ratti seed. This seed is actually "Abrus precatorius" seed.
