The Chinese Herb Hai Jin Sha is the spores of a large, climbing tropical fern native to Taiwan, Japan, and other parts of Southeast Asia in the genus Lygodium known as the Japanese climbing fern– Lygodium japonicum (Thumb.).  Its large leaves produce spores for reproduction that are collected and used as medicine.
