Description
 

Very unique hand carved grade A Dzi bead. The images of Medicine Buddha, Green Tara and Kalachakra have been painstakingly hand carved on one side of each bead.

Dzi bead is a type of stone bead of uncertain origin worn as part of a necklace and sometimes as a bracelet . In several Asian Cultures, including that of Tibet the bead is considered to provide positive spiritual benefit. These beads are generally prized as protective amulets and are sometimes ground into a powder to be used in traditional Tibetan medicine. Beads subject to this process have small "dig marks" where a portion of the bead has been scraped or ground away to be included in the medicine. Some dzi exhibit grinding and polishing of one or both ends, again the result of reduction for use in traditional Tibetan medicine or, in some cases, due to the bead's use as a burnishing tool in the application of gold leaf to thangka paintings or gilt bronze statuary.

The most highly prized dzi beads are those of ancient age, made of natural agate. The original source of these beads is a mystery. While the traditional, ancient-style beads are greatly preferred, new modern-made dzi are gaining popularity amongst Tibetans.

The Medicine Buddha bead will help heal all areas of your life. The Green Tara will help to keep you safe. The Kalachakra will offer protection, insight, and help master and understand time. The bead's are 1.75 inches. CHOOSE DIETY SELECTION BELLOW
