AMAZING ANCIENT TIBETAN PHUM DZI BEAD 2000+ YO 34mm AGATE STONE OLD
AMAZING ANCIENT LARGE PHUM DZI BEAD. THIS BEAD DATES FROM THE BON TIMES, LONG BEFORE BUDDHISM WAS INTRODUCED IN TIBET. THE BEAD IS VERY WEATHERED WITH WONDERFUL PATINA AND ANCIENT AGE MARKS. IT STILL REMAINS ROBUST DESPITE THE SURFACE FISSURES. THE FISSURES ARE BLACK DUE TO BURNED OILS FROM CANDLES AND BUTTER LAMPS DURING PRAYER RITUALS. THE BEAD HAS WITNESSED 2000+ YEARS OF TIBETAN RITUALS. PHUM DZI BEADS ARE MUCH OLDER THAN THE ANCIENT EYE DZI BEADS OR CHUNG DZI BEADS. THE PATTERN IS TURTLE BACK / LONGEVITY. THERE IS SOME FADING AS YOU CAN SEE IN PICTURES. THIS BEAD SHOULD BRING LONG LIFE AND GOOD LUCK TO THE WEARER. PHUM DZI 34 MM LONG AND IN ONE PIECE ARE VERY RARE AND DEMAND VERY HIGH PRICES. THIS BEAD IS NOT ONLY PART OF THE PRE BUDDHISM HISTORY OF TIBET, BUT IT IS ALSO PART OF THE AMERICAN BEAD COLLECTING HISTORY. NAOMI LINDSTROM WAS A PIONEER OF BEAD COLLECTING IN AMERICA. HER BEAD & JEWELRY COLLECTION WAS VERY EXTENSIVE. HER FASCINATING STORY IS BRIEFLY DESCRIBED IN THE MICHAAN’S ONLINE CATALOG FROM MARCH 7, 2016, PAGE 36. PLEASE CHECK THE ONLINE MICHAAN’S CATALOG FROM JULY. I CAN PROVIDE MORE INFORMATION AS NEEDED. THIS IS A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY FOR THE ANCIENT DZI BEAD COLLECTOR TO OWN THIS WONDERFUL PIECE OF HISTORY.
