Original Tibetan Dzi



Diamond is found in Africa, Gold is found in many regions, and Dzi is almost found only in Tibet.

Original Dzi is the most expensive jewel to buy in Tibet. It is the Tibetan version of Diamond.

They are many different stories of Dzi in the legend of Tibet. Three of the stories I have heard from elders.

Some Tibetans say that Dzi is fallen from the sky as a treasure from above.  

Some say it's a worm and turns into a stone after many many years.

Some say that it is one of the finest ancient works and those experts who know how to make a fine Dzi are very rare nowadays so that is the reason it is expensive.  

A very easy way to check if it's a stone or a plastic is to burn and check but that also doesn't help to check if it's an original Dzi or fake since many new Dzi from Taiwan is good stone materials but they are not expensive as the original Dzi.

The price of the original Dzi will depend on the quality of the Dzi and the number of eyes on the Dzi and condition of the Dzi, art design of the Dzi.
The most expensive Dzi is the nine-eye Dzi. Next are five eye Dzi, and three eye Dzi, and two eye Dzi.

My cousins know a Dzi businessman so if Travelers are interested to buy the original Dzi, contact us directly.

The price will also depend on the size of the Dzi but the most important will depend on the age of the Dzi, the ancient Dzi is around at least 500 years old.

The price of the original Dzi will cost above 20k US dollars depending on the quality and the eye.

The most highly prized Dzi beads are those of ancient age, made of natural agate

They are many imitation Dzi that are created from materials other than agate or chalcedony. They can be made of glass, resin, lampwork, wood, bone, plastic, metal, or non-traditional etched stones.


One great deed I remember was when a movie star from Hongkong has bought a very expensive original Dzi and offered it to Buddha Shakyamuni in the Jokhang Temple. May the merit brings world peace and happiness to all.

Dzi is a mineral stone and many people believed that the original Dzi will protect us from obstacles and also help the health of the body while wearing it. 

Some people say that when someone wears original Dzi, they look more majestic. 

These are Tibet Travelers' information regarding the Dzi, Tibetan version of the diamond.
