An amazing ancient three eyed dZi bead in fine condition. Beads with an odd number of eyes are the most sought after in Tibet and few beads of this type are ever seen in the marketplace. This dZi is in excellent condition for a bead that is likely to be more than 2000 years old. There is minor weathering to the body and some minor digs worn smooth from centuries of heirlooming and wearing on the body. There are no breaks or cracks on the body of this bead. This is a perfect robust dZi that oozes character and desirability. Notice how the decoration encloses two of the eyes all the way to the end lines. This is rarely seen on a three eyed bead and we do not recall seeing another ancient dZi like this for sale. The bead is opaque, which also makes this far more collectible than a translucent bead. Numerous blood spots can also be seen under magnification, which Tibetans believe indicates a very healthy and potent dZi.  

Please note that the crystalline zones around the eyes are inherent in the stone. During the decorating process, only the areas that are porous will allow the decoration and colour enhancement to penetrate deep into the stone. Crystalline areas will not allow this, which is why many ancient dZi display small crystal zones on the body of the bead.
