These great wood malas are said to come from the sacred Taoist and Buddhist pilgrimage region of Wu Tai Shan in China. This area also known as the Five-Peaked Mountain is believed to be the abode of Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom.

A superfine hand crafted bronze phurba with an incredibly rare
Siberian meteorite blade. Guaranteed to be crafted from authentic
Seymchan iron meteorite, which was first discovered in Siberia in 1967. Each piece is
hand crafted by a master metal worker who is unsurpassed in the making
of ritual phurbas in modern times. It is believed that Tibetans have an
ancient tradition of using meteoric iron for ritual Phurbas, however,
very few genuine pieces are believed to exist. There is often mention of
Guru Rinpoche or Yeshe Tsogyal concealing meteoric phurbas as terma
and quite a number have been re-discovered over the centuries. The
immense power of a meteorite when it falls to earth is so destructive in
nature that it is easy to see why sky metal is the most sought after
material for ritual phurbas.
