Amulet, Buddhist pendant. Amitabha, Buddha dhyana, meditation Buddha of the pure lands of the west.
Obsidian ice. Russia. The absence of inclusions gives this obsidian a special transparency.
Obsidian being a vitrification of acid lava rich in silica, it is easy to create glass counterfeits.
The obsidian is not crystallized, it is a glass, it recristallizes on a geological scale in Cristobalite. The obsidian snowflake owes its white spots to recristallization.
A magnifying glass 10 times, allows in the field, to track these cristobalites inside the obsidian, thus guaranteeing its authenticity.
Be careful, however, not to confuse its cristobalites with the agglomerates called "bread crumbs" present in counterfeit human glass.
We would like to warn our readers against the many counterfeits of molded glass obsidian. Obsidian being a natural volcanic vitrification, it is easy to counterfeit this material. Only a detailed examination with the eye, the magnifying glass and the microscope can unravel the true from the false. As obsidian ice is relatively rare, a very low price should alert the future purchaser. Extraction at the production site, transport, size, trading, all at once. We scrupulously examine our obsidian to ensure their authenticity to our customers.
We are able to provide a certificate of authenticity on request.
Amitabha, Amityus or Amida is a Buddha of Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism. He reigns over the "Pure Western Land of Beatitude" (sk.: Sukh-vat, ch.: X-f-ng jelè sh-jiè, ja.: saih-goraku sekai極樂), a wonderful, pure, perfect world, devoid of evil, of suffering. This pure land, a place of refuge outside the cycle of transmigrations - or the equivalent of nirvàa according to certain conceptions - is at the center of the beliefs and practices of the schools of the Pure Land. This Buddha, also known as the Buddha Buddha, is very popular among Mahayists, especially in the Chinese world, Korea, Japan, Tibet and Vietnam.
