Ancient Guru Rinpoche's Dharma Cap Motif Dzi Bead (TiD-Anc-b-GRDC-101223) - Old DziDharma

This bead is adorned with the Guru Rinpoche's Dharma Cap Motif. The Guru Rinpoche’s Dharma Cap Motif is believed to bless its wearer with Wisdom, Power, and Reputation. The Dharma Cap is a reminder that many problems originate from ignorance.

This bead measures 43.3 mm x 11.8 mm. It is an old bead, estimated to be between 500 to 800 years old.

The bead material is high quality natural agate. There are bloodspots on this bead, but they are not prominent enough to earn it the distinction of being a bloodspot dzi bead.

This piece is in excellent condition. There are no cracks on this bead. As with all antique dzi beads, weathering marks and minor digs are all part of the beauty.

Bloodspot (Cinnabar Dot) info:

Cinnabar dots are also known as "bloodspots" or "硃砂" in Chinese. They occur when mercury and sulfur are present when the agate was formed. Mercuric sulfide (or cinnabar) is obtained when mercury reacts with sulfur. In its purest form, the color is a deep red. In fact, it is how vermilion pigment is made. However, it is difficult and rare to find it in its purest form in agate. The purest form, used to make vermillion, is usually obtained in labs where conditions can be controlled. In nature, there is usually other material present thus giving it slight variations in its redness.
