In early 2018, DharmaShop founder Sander Cohen went to Taiwan to meet with Tibetans living in exile. He was able to source a variety of unique beads directly from these Tibetan collectors. This limited edition men's bracelet is made with black lava rock beads from Indonesia and features an ancient Dzi bead centerpiece from Sander's visit to Taiwan.
This ancient chung style Dzi bead with both smooth white and black coarse stone is truly extraordinary. These antique Dzi beads are trade beads from Yemen that made their way to Taiwan where we found them. This style of bead is extremely unique in the world of Dzi beads. While ancient, they have been stabilized in modern times and have a magnificent texture and satin finish.
Lava rock is known for its grounding properties and is wonderful for calming the emotions. It is created from the center of the earth and therefore is fantastic for stabilizing and grounding the Root Chakra.
Bracelet is strung on stretchy cord and is available in two sizes. Small measures about 7-7.5 inches around. Large measures about 7.75-8 inches around. *Each Dzi is unique; size or color may vary slightly.*
