The dZi bead is one of the most mysterious of all the beads known to us today.
It is unclear as to its exact origin, time of manufacture, or even how long they have been an important part of Tibetan culture.
The land they are associated with, Tibet, is a mystical land in itself.
What is known is that these shiny stone beads patterned with mystical eyes and stripes are now of the most treasured beads in the world.
It is fitting that the meaning of the word "dZi" in Tibetan is "shine, brightness, clearness, splendor.
It was thought that this would add to the talisman power of the statues.
The beads themselves were elemental in color: red coral as blood, fire and light, turquoise beads as water, sky and air, and amber to represent earth.
The dZi, particularly those of sought after patterns, command high prices and are very difficult to come by.
Most Tibetans will not let go of a dZi once they have it because it provides them with protection, and may cause bad luck if they were to get rid of it.
Also, the great antiquity of these beads, and the inability to excavate mean that these beads are in greater demand than there is a supply of them.
It is difficult to say much for sure about the dZi, since scholars have been debating about them for years due to the lack of physical evidence.
However, it is simply a pleasure to look upon the beautiful jewelry of the Tibetans (and surrounding Himalayan countries) and see the mystical bead that carries so much power and history behind it.
Stories About The Mystic Agate dZi Beads
Tibetans believe that the dZi are precious jewels of supernatural origin.
There are many different stories and beliefs surrounding the dZi, all describing their existence as non-man-made artifacts.
Their origin is said to be from ancient times when semi-gods wore them as ornaments.
Whenever the dZi became blemished slightly, they were thrown to the earth.
This might be an attempt to explain why the beads are never found in perfect condition.
Once they fell to earth, they manifested as insects. There are several stories regarding the dZi as insects.
The stories discuss how the dZi were once insects that moved like worms in the earth, but had become petrified, usually by the touch of human hand.
One story involves a man who saw one these insects high in the mountains and threw his hat over it to capture it.
When he removed the hat, the insect had become petrified and in its place lay a dZi.
Another set of the insect stories relate that they were encountered in the high mountains by someone with especially good karma who managed to catch them.
But in coming into contact with the defilement of human touch they had become petrified. Sometimes these insect dZi are found in cattle dung or the horns of slaughtered animals.
This insect theory is widespread and is often cited to explain why a great number of dZi are often found at once, forming a kind of "nest".
Some believe that even after the beads have been unearthed they will continue to move for a little while.
One legend from Ngari, Western Tibet says that the dZi originated from a mountain near Rudok.
In ancient times they were said to flow down its slopes like streams. One day a wicked woman cast the evil eye upon the mountain and the flow immediately stopped.
To this day, the characteristic black and white stripes of the dZi are seen from where they once issued.
A recent story that has circulated about the dZi, which has become a kind of "urban legend": there was a car accident in Taipei, Taiwan, and all of the people were killed except for the wearer of a dZi bead.
All of these stories confirm the beliefs that the dZi are magical, and will protect the wearer from harm , both from sickness and from evil spirits.
The dZi are even considered to be of medicinal value.
Traditional medicine in Tibet for epilepsy includes grinding up a previously unbroken dZi to mix with other magical substances to make a pill for the sufferer.
An unbroken dZi is used for this because it is believed that once a dZi is broken, its power has been used up for the protective purposes it was meant to serve.
The wearer has already been saved from attack at this time.
DZi beads are mined high in the Himalaya.
Its composition is actually agate, but with magnetic field particularly stronger.
It can strengthen your physical constitution.
Medical research had proven that you'll start to feel thirsty when you start to wear dZi bead initially, which means that your metabolism and blood circulation are speeding up.
Or it may be detecting something negative that it is helping you to put burn away.
But after three days, anyone would have adapted to it.
The bead will keep a person healthy and even help to lose weight.
For those who are familiar with crystals, we know that agate is very powerful to expel off negative energies and nourishes your good fortune luck.
On enhancement of health, it helps relieve tiredness, improve blood circulation and nourishes the root chakra.
It would stimulate analytical capabilities and enhance your inherent talents.
Agate is sometimes called the Firestone and will encourage good luck to flow to you.
It promotes prosperity by making you more energetic and sociable and can greatly benefit business and personal matters too.

I received the beautiful brass dragons,
bronze dragon incense burner and Kuan Yin.
They are absolutely beautiful. I paid almost
double for a smaller brass dragon from a
different company that looks almost childish
next to yours.
It is very obvious the quality of this artwork
is far superior and the energy in my house feels
like it has lifted. The small dragon you included
as a gift is much nicer than I expected,
thank you very much! I will enjoy these for many years, many thanks.
I look forward to ordering my Christmas presents from you.
