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.
Amazing detail and agate banding, as well as very large drilled holes that are uneven and drilled halfway through then drilled from the other side.
We just received a shipment of the best modern dzi beads I have ever seen in 20 years of collecting. These beads are so good they look like the ancient beads being sold for $30,000 right now. Stunning in depth and clarity, we took these beads around the Tucson gem show and jaws hit the floor, they are exceptional. You can see agate banding under the designs and the beads are perfectly made.
Sourced in Tibetan communities in Kathmandu, I have just a few of these exquisite quality beads that i will list singly here on the website 36 by 11mm
