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.
Tibetans wear their dzi beads on gold chains close to their hearts. The dzi is strung on a gold filled 18" flat chain. (1.2mm thick)
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 3/4 inch long
