What is Dzi? This dzi bead is called "Da Ren" or "big man". It looks like a stick figure of a man and is thought to bring determination, safety and karma cleansing.
Tibetan Dzi Agate beads are believed to have been created around 2000 B.C. and used primarily for spiritual protection, traditional medicine and jewelry. Opinions about exactly how dzi beads were originally made with such intricate designs in a time without modern technology are about as varied as those surrounding the construction of the Great Pyramids of Giza, Egypt.
Nobody really knows how they were made, but we can surely agree that they are quite beautiful. Our mock dzi beads are modern reproductions enhanced with technology and heat treated into genuine agate to replicate the ancient patterns of Tibetan dzi. Original Tibetan dzi beads can fetch upwards of $10,000 each at auction, depending on their condition and design. I don't know about you, but I feel fortunate to live in a time when simple commoners can wear the same jewelry as ancient royals.
Made with 45mm tube of natural agate stone with ancient Tibetan pattern dyed/painted on each tube. Surrounded by 10mm natural beige Riverstone beads and hematite accent. Handmade in USA and securely strung on best quality stretch string.
