Tibetan dzi bead made from etched agate that displays the 3-eyed hexagonal 'mouth' enclosing the central eye pattern. The lines of the design are nice and clean. Rich, deep color. It has a satin appearance/texture and displays typical circular age marks.
Newly created dzi beads, such as this one, provide the opportunity for people to own an etched agate dzi without the high cost of the very rare and ancient dzi. Ancient dzi prices can actually exceed the cost of a new car and then some! Newly created dzi beads are growing exponentially in popularity and actually have a considerable collectible market value of their own because of how well they are being made now.
