I bought this beautiful Dzi bead from a friend who bought it from a family in Ladakh in 1989 . A very well made agate bead with 3 eyes probably made mid 1980s . This bead measures 3.8 cm x 1.2 cm and has red coral beads on either side . The clasp is an antique turquoise carved bat . A beautiful bead that i wore for many years that was blessed in the early 1990s by the Tibetan master of ceremonies , the Dali Lamas teacher .
