This is quite a special Dzi bead due to the fact that includes a Dorje
on one side and a Nectar
bottle on the other. The Dorje is a symbol of firmness of spirit and spiritual power and as a ritual tool it is used to destroy ignorance. A symbol of wisdom and enlightenment, dating all the way back to Vedic texts where it was wielded by the Hindu God Vindra. The Dorje is a sacred tool that Tibetans and Buddhists use to help them reach enlightenment. It assists in connecting to Vajradhara. Vajradhara is the primordial Buddha, the dharmakaya Buddha.
To Tibetans the Treasure Vase or Nectar Bottle, is revered as the most precious gift of life. The Treasure Vase you find on any Tibetan altar is filled with gems, sutras, herbs and many other sacred objects.
The Nectar Bottle assists in bringing in the good things in life, to Tibetans this is called "milk & honey". In the Tibetan culture, milk & honey is precious, rare and highly treasured. This bead is said to bring in these things to your life.
Once you have connected with this Sacred Object, you will find the Dzi assisting you with opening doors, making your path easy and generally "feasting" on life.
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. Details:

*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.
