As a gemologist graduated from the National Institute of Gemmology of Paris, all our stones are appraised and certified.

As a Malakara, we make all our malas ourselves while scrupulously respecting tradition.

The mala, trengwa, in Tibetan is the buddhist's rosary, the object from which the monk (or even the lay practitioner) almost never separates, holding it in his hand or wrapped around the wrist.
The mala is first of all a utilitarian onjet: it serves as a tactile support for the recitation of mantras, at the same time as it is used to count them if one has set to repeat a defined number.
The mala is composed of 108 strung pearls, which justifies its name, since it simply means "garland" (of pearls). The different components each contain a symbolic meaning specify: The large pearl (or Buddha's head) that closes the loop represents the knowledge of emptiness. The small cone that surmounts it is the mark of emptiness itself.

According to Tibetan tradition, the Dzi of the 21 eyes increases the magic power inherent in the wearer, it performs what you desire most. This dzi magnifies all the characteristics of other pearls and concentrates them into one. This dzi helps the owner to reach a demigod state by the fact that his dreams come true. But the holder of such a pearl must remain pious and pure of heart. The pearl with 21 eyes is highly sought after.

Dimension of the DZI 57mm long by 12mm in diameter
Weight of the mala 111 grams.

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...

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.

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.

Many legends attribute to them a divine origin. One of them claims that they sometimes fall from the sky escaped from the treasures of the Gods, another says that they "mature" at the bottom of the earth and that they can sometimes be found inside some geodes. Some legends say that they are fossil insects, and others finally Garuda droppings.

The Dzi are also mentioned in some ancient Buddhist texts because some malas intended for the advanced practices of Vajrayana must be made in Dzi Dzi dating back 4500 years were found in Tibet during archaeological excavations, so in the middle of the Bön shamanism period long before the arrival of Buddhism.

A lot of counterfeits are circulating, as well as modern DZIs sold as antiques at astronomical prices

The whole is enhanced with true turquoise from the Hubei region.
From agate Nan Hong "southern red" of Yunnan province. This unusual volcanic agate owes its color to its natural cinnabar content.
