The detail and agate striping on this bead are awesome and you can see flaws and occlusions under the doped dzi design. This is a bead that is unparallelled at this price point.
I just bought a collection of dzi beads from an old friend and many of them are silver wrapped true agates
Sourced in Tibetan communities in Kathmandu, I have just a few of these exquisite quality beads. 8 eyes, one of a kind 2 inches wide. Each bead will vary slightly, as no two are the same.
