Believed to protect the owner from misfortune, these were among the most highly prized beads in the ancient world. They were especially valued in Tibet, though they were not produced there. This one would have been manufactured in South Asia some time between 2,000 and 4,000 years ago. As with all dzi beads, the dark brown area of the stone may have been darkened in a process that involved it being coated with a solution of natural sugar and then baked. Lukmik means goats eye which is not in fact a very accurate description! These ancient stones can be in Carnelian and Agate forms and are natural.
