A great looking ancient Phum dZi. The longevity decoration has faded in the central zone, giving this Phum an unsual appearance. The surface is super smooth from centuries of close contact to the body. The ends display amazing wear from being strung with other beads. A very alive bead! Collected in India in the 1970s. No breaks or repairs.
Origin: Tibet Age 1000 BCE to 300 BCE
