Precious Protective Tibet Antique Six Eye Dzi Bead Amulet Necklace

About

"Most Valuable and Powerful Protection Amulet in Tibet" A fine old Tibetan or Central Asian six eye agate Dzi Bead, Ming dynasty or earlier. This classic barrel shaped bead is biconically drilled for suspension in a necklace or bracelet. Our naturally white banded and tapered caramel-brown agate bead dates to the Ming dynasty or earlier as evidenced by the significant surface patina from appropriate centuries old age (photos). Our Dzi bead has a pattern of 6 white "heavenly eyes", considered one of the most sought after types of these beads. The middle part of this bead is thicker than the tapered ends which gives them a graceful curve. An unobstructed hole runs through the centre of this lovely example. Hand carved: Ancient dzi beads are handmade, hand abraded and hand polished using primitive tools of the time: bamboo, stone, water and stone dust. Notice the considerable and original surface patina on this example- evidence of considerable wear and good age. Dzi beads were considered magical in ancient and present times. They were sacred implements and emblems of Tibetan and other Asian cultures and are believed to hold magical properties bringing prosperity and protection to the owner. They are also thought to hold medicinal propertie as some examples may show surface abrasions - also good signs of authenticity- where small amounts of the stone was extracted and later ground into powder for local medicines. Precious Dzi beads were traded across the Asian continent. Dimensions: Our bead is 2.33 inches in length and .62 inches diameter; We will include a 18 inch complimentary necklace cord so that it may be worn immediately. Dzi may be worn horizontally in a necklace or vertically as a "drop" fashion pendant. Quality: fine condition Provenance: Private Hong Kong collection Lifetime Guarantee All of our Asian works of art are accompanied by our Lifetime Guarantee of Authenticity.
