Dzi beads were prized as protective amulets and sometimes had one or both ends ground into a powder to be used in traditional Tibetan medicine. Typical Dzi bead patterns include stripes, waves, eyes, geometric shapes, zig zag lines and dots. The x8 Tibetan Turquoise beads in this necklace are antique and of superb quality and are difficult to find. The beautiful markings and vibrant green color are exquisite and come with age as the turquoise oxidizes. It takes centuries for the stones to acquire this color and patina. Tibetans believe that turquoise offers protection from evil and brings the wearer good luck. Turquoise has been a treasured jewelry stone around the world for thousands of years. It was used by the Egyptians as early as 5500 B. In many cultures turquoise is regarded as a harbinger of good fortune, success and health. Turquoise is associated with peace, endurance, surefootedness, good luck, mood improvement, protection, courage, peace and healing. The x8 red orange beads are Pema Raka Carnelian stones, also known as “blood Lotus” or “red Lotus”. These beads are between 300 – 1,000 years plus old. They are believed to have healing and protective powers. The Dzi and Pema Raka beads have been examined and authenticated as genuine ancient beads by bead expert, Jamey Allen.
