Rare Ancient Six Eye dZi Bead
A magnificent ancient dZi bead with six eyes and the step or lighting bolt motif. It displays a lovely dark colour with mocha tones and each of the six eyes is clearly visible. A rare opportunity to own a dZi bead that is now rarely seen in or outside of Asia.
Prized in Tibet and the Himalayan regions.

Origin: Private Collection - Sourced in North India in the early 1970s.
Condition: Mostly very good, however, there is a surface dig worn smooth (2nd photo) from centuries of being worn on the body. It has minor surface blemishes which is to be expected from a 2000 year old (+ or -) bead.

Any surface blemishes are always much more noticeable in the enlarged photos. With the naked eye they are not so apparent.
