This One-of-a-kind Dzi Agate bracelet features Tibetan agates that form a geometric design. Quite unique there are only two left.
There is a lot of mystery surrounding dZi agate and dZi beads which have been found from as early as 2500 BC. This mysterious agate is steeped in history, with many religions and belief systems turning to the powers and energies of the stone for assistance in medicine as well as holistically. They were often ground up and used for healing or alternately small bits were chipped from them.
As agate is naturally a hard stone which would chip quite easily, the stone would have to be heated (in a vacuum) before it could be carved and even then, this may not always work. The aforementioned process has only been deemed possible in recent years, so how did they make them thousands of years ago? This remains mostly a mystery to this day. There are scientific speculations including treatments which would darken areas of the stone using heat, or bleaching patterns into the stone – but nobody fully knows for sure the exact techniques which were used for etching or carving the beads.
