The origin of 'Dzi Beads'

Dzi bead; pronounced "zee"; alternative spelling: gzi) is a bead stone of mysterious 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 up 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 shaved away to be ground into the medicine.
The most highly prized dzi beads are made of natural agate and were apparently manufactured in ancient times by an unknown people. There are also new dzi which gain popularity amongst Tibetans.

'Whether dZi beads are spiritual bugs or stones fallen from Heaven, they bring good karma to those who own them. Since having a dZi bead can bring good fortune, health and wealth, affluent Tibetans have long been avid collectors of these legendary jewels. As long as 1300 years ago, The New History of the Tang Dynasty recorded that Tibetans liked to wear dZi beads, "a single one of which could be traded for a horse." From this you can see the high value that was placed on them.'

Beautiful rich colors on this piece, I am more of a slip over my head necklace wearer and beader as most of the findings make me itch.....
But you put a lot of hard work into this I am sure and would make a wonderful present for a friend or family member....
Keep up the great work and I would love to see more of your work...Mine is pretty earthy and not as nice as yours...
