The process of hand making Dzi beads has been kept a secret in Tibet for untold centuries. Only the highest grade materials are used, which include over a dozen types of Tibetan minerals and crystals.
This beautiful Dzi bead measures approx 1 1/8" x .5" and is drilled lengthwise.
* Dzi beads should be treated as sacred/special objects and not just jewelry or a trinket. The symbols they carry and what they represent go back thousands of years and carry all of that momentum and energy forward with them. It is recommended that one wash their hands before putting it on or taking it off, do not wear it during sexual activity and when not worn, should be placed/kept in a spot designated just for it. Dzi beads can and do absorb negative energies and things that do not serve us for our personal growth, and as such, they become a powerful spiritual tool if treated with the proper care they deserve.
