In this category you will find round tabular eye beads that are known in Tibet as Luk Mik (Goat's Eye) or Ta Mik (Horse Eye). These ancient beads are either decorated with eyes or are naturally banded with concentric crystalline layers. The decorated variety are highly valued by Tibetans and are not so commonly seen. We will also include other rare quality eye beads that are tabular in shape but are not necessarily of Himalayan origin.
