Tibetan sacred agate.
DZI, 3-eyed dzi,
powerful Tibetan protection.
ethnic necklace, Tibetan
Our contemporary Dzis are made according to tradition, by Tibetan craftsmen located at the crossroads of Yunnan, Sichuan and Tibet in the Tibetan prefecture of Gyaltran at 4000 meters above sea level.
The stone is agate, and the drawings on its surface are made by the hand of man, but according to a secret technique. A mixture of plant and lead is applied to their surface, the whole thing is cooked (at about 1200 degrees); at the exit and once the mixture is removed the drawings appear. According to some sources, some of the oldest Dzi were colored FROM THE INSIDE using secret techniques lost for a long time...
A lot of counterfeits are circulating, as well as modern DZIs sold as antiques at astronomical prices.
As a gemologist graduated from the National Institute of Gemmology of Paris, all our subjects are appraised and certified.

Weight of 30.9 grams
According to Tibetan tradition, the 3-eyed Dzi represents the three stars of luck, happiness, honor and longevity. This is the manifesto of the Hindu god of wealth, the Kubera. This 3-eyed pearl creates the favorable conditions to enjoy fortune, happiness and prosperity.
The Dzis that can be translated as "brilliantly polished", "luminous" are agate pearls of elongated shape having on their surfaces a decoration of various and varied geometric shapes, but each having a very specific meaning. Dzi are considered by Tibetans to be powerful protections. According to legend, these stones are not of earthly origin, but, shaped by the gods and sown on earth so that whoever finds them, has a better Karma.
The Dzi is a Tibetan pearl, of distant origin, bringing many mystical benefits and benefits to its wearer. It is a Tibetan talisman or amulet, the king of good luck charms, sometimes worshipped as a true deity. The success of the Tibetan pearl comes from its multiple eyes, up to 21.
Dzis are supposed to bring good fortune, ward off evil spirits, and protect its wearer from dangers and accidents, and even bring longevity and good health.
The DZI originates from the Central Asian region and is usually found in a region that covers Afghanistan, Iran, Tibet, India, Pakistan, Nepal, Buthan to Burma and Thailand. They are found in many sizes and shapes, with multiple eyes and stripes. Tibetans cherish these pearls and consider them hereditary jewels. The meaning of the Tibetan word "Dzi" translates to "brilliance, clarity, splendor". In Mandarin Chinese, dzi are called "pearl of the sky". Tibetans recognize, without being envious or jealous, the qualities of brilliant people, those people who shine intellectually and attract the attention and admiration of all. For Tibetans, wearing a Dzi pearl can develop in everyone that natural brilliance called Talent.
