These small Mexican package amulets are similar to the stuffed bag found on the large Mexican package amulet called El Secreto de la Virtuosa Herradura. Two are made of shiny rayon cloth and the third is coarse wool. They measure about 1" x 2". Each bag is filled with wheat grains, and to each a small print of San Martin Caballero, the money-bringing saint, has been glued.
The wheat in these diminutive amulets represents the gold found in a sack by the legendary Indian who discoved "the secret of the virtuous horseshoe," but whereas El Secreto de la Virtuosa Herradura amulets are made to hang on a wall, these little bags are small enough to be carried on the person as wealth-attractors.
