Ancient Luk Mik dZi Bead
Ancient Luk Mik dZi Bead - 38 mm
Our Price: £1,000.00

A rare size ancient tabular agate bead with a greyish-blue zone of colour, possibly indicating that this bead leans more towards the blue chalcedony variety. The overall condition is mostly very good. There are some superficial surface fissures that were probably inherent in the stone when the bead was created. Tabular beads in this size are seldom seen and they have been prized since ancient times in Tibet. Many beads of this type likely originated from Persia or the Indus Valley region and were adopted by Tibetans as a unique type of dZi bead.
