There are 2 main theories in regards to how old Dzi are. There are only 2 categories of Dzi beads, Ancient, 1500 years old and over or New/Antique, made in between the 80s and now. Nothing in between, not 100, 300 or 1100 years old. There are New/Antique Dzi made in between 80s and now. There are OLD Dzi made, up to about 300 years ago, etched in Pakistan and Iran; this is suggested and supported by a respected bead historian but is not supported with images of archaeological finds or details about specific beads to support this theory. Pakistan and Iran etched beads the ancient way until about 300 years ago but it is not documented if Dzi along other beads. The people that they benefit respectively, support 1 of the theories. Which is correct is up to you to learn and conclude. There are Dzi that have characteristics of bough antique and ancient. Until you see and feel genuine ancient Dzi, is pretty impossible to be able to distinguish in between. It is not possible to asses the age of a bead through its Ware, Damage, alone, as many believe. The most reliable way to asses age is by observing the surface, skin, ; the waxy, greasy, buttery top layer, this can not be made. It is very difficult to see the difference, the genuine skin; it takes time and the opportunity to handle ancient beads. There are ancient beads that had been worn less so the skin is even less obvious, so 1 way of assessing is never enough. 99.9 % beads for sale are new, either Shiny, Glassy, new like or hideous, odd colours, mat surface because are made of other material than agate.

Dzi beads are Art, Unique, Hand made, Beautiful. A bead that is Hand carved, maybe on a rock, is obviously incomparably more beautiful than made by automated machine. There are a very few rare quality beads none Ancient(1500+years) where the hand carving is visible just like ancient beads. Gone are the days of carving beads individually on a rock and if a skilled crafter does it, will take many days and price will reflect that. Same goes for decoration. The perfect strait lines are impossible to be done by hand or with ancient methods of etching. Beads showing the agate crystals, natural bands are present on many ancient beads and few other mostly good quality beads. An ancient Dzi feels instantly mysterious, special and some how powerful.
