Dear Yaroslav Vassilkov,

here are two pages with photos (not very good ones, I am afraid):

There must also be an out‐of‐copyright botanical book with good
drawings on the web somewhere. I do not know whether the nuts
(berry seeds?) received any special treatment before being used as
‘dice’ (whence presumably your interest, though I see they also
figure in Āyurveda).

Best regards,
