Dzi is the most PROMISING Magical Protector and Energizer
(Copyright reserved by Feng Shui Bestbuy)
Introduction

      Dzi (pronounced as zeeee...) originated from Tibet and the Himalayan mountains around 3000 years ago. In Tibetan this word can simply be translated to bring good meanings of "splendour, brightness and shine". Dzi is a supernatural gemstone talisman that treasures magical powers. It comes in different shapes and sizes and are dark colored agate bead etched with a certain number of eyes, heavenly patterns and auspicious symbols. The dZi is originated from the land of mythical Buddhist lamas and is endorsed by all to possess protective, enhancing, curative and healing powers. It often brings fantastic good fortune, prosperity, wealth and good health to the owner as well. Wearing the powerful talismanic dzi is believed to dissipate such negativities depending on their patterns and usage.

History

      Tibetan Buddhist texts had recorded stories of stones (dzi) dropping from the heaven. It was about a basic Himalayan legend indicating that an evil spirit would from time to time cause diseases and natural disasters to mankind. Fortunately, a deity wanted to help mankind and cultivated its powers in Heaven, causing the beads to fall from Heaven. Hence dZi's are never perfect and are always blemished in some way. And those who obtain one of these stones would be protected from misfortunes and all kinds of evil. Some said the dZi is the gemstone worn by deities in the heaven and once they wear off, they are thrown away and ended up falling on earth. Another legend even said the dZi bead was developed from a magical bug that got petrified when touched by human. Whether dZi beads are petrified bugs or stones fallen from Heaven, they bring good fortune to those who own them. Since having a dZi bead can bring good fortune, luck, riches, health and wealth, rich people of Taiwan and Singapore have high affinity to these legendary jewels. In fact, history of ancient Tang Dynasty had recorded that Tibetans could trade a dZi bead for their most valuable animals that they owned. This reiterates how highly priced they are. If one had visited the Tibetan Jokhang Monastery, one would find hundreds of precious dZi beads decorating the statue of Jobo Sakyamuni.

The Real Dzi

      A real dZi must be made from genuine agate dugged from earth. In modern times, there are fake dzis made from acrylic, glass, resin, metal and wood is not a real dZi. The following are the three categories considered as a real dzi.
1. Ancient Dzi - these are claimed to be the original beads (with agate as content and patterns of heaven automatically appearing on them) believed to be fallen from heaven a few thousand years ago. Bottom line, no one knows who, where and when these dZis were made or manufactured. They usually exist as broken pieces and are not being sold openly in the market, instead they are being kept in museums and sacred temples/monasteries. Rarely available and even if they can be found, they are only passed down from ancestors to descendants because selling one's dzi away to others brings extremely bad luck! An ancient dZi can fetch up to 6 figures in dollars. None of the dZis sold in the open market or anywhere in the internet belong to this category.
2. Antique Dzi - these dZis are usually more than a hundred years old and worn by previous generations of Tibetans. They were manmade with known origins and being possessed by Tibetan ancestors, and were traded to others later. The main composition of this type of dZi is agate and the patterns of heaven and symbols were etched by skillful artisans on the beads. Because of their antique values, they usually fetch thousands of dollars. Although they fetch antique values, they are not recommended to be used in case they still possess stale or old energy left from the previous wearers.
3. The New Real Dzi - These are also made from genuine agate, carefully etched by skillful artisans of Tibet with firm delineation of shapes and patterns. The best new dZi are made by skilled Tibetan artisans who have been passed the ancient technique of dZi making through previous generations of dZi makers. Only those from Tibet are known as "pure" dZi. The rest that are made in Nepal and India are not considered as the pure dZi. The new real dZi are not being worn by anyone before and most importantly they emanate the same energy. They are still highly valued by Tibetans, Buddhist practitioners and bead collectors. They can be worn around the neck, as bracelets, or you can add them to your mala or even set a Dzi into a ring or pendant.

The most important point to be stressed here is that only the real dzis possess mysterious energy that can make one more energetic and bring good fortune. The real dZi have over 10 minerals from the Himalaya. They must be etched with volcanic temperature and only the good grades can withstand that level of heat. Unfortunately because of the advancement of technology today, many manufacturers have successfully made immitations close to 98% perfectly the same as the real dZi. Therefore, only the expert knows how to identify the real dZi. The exact criteria is hard to be spelt out according to the experts. They just know how to differentiate them when they see and feel them. Some said the dZi has to be broken into half to tell if it is a real dZi or some even suggested diaphaneity (transparency) using lights. But the immitation dZis have successfully achieved the same.


Previously a broken dZi to confirm "etching" was used to determine if dZi was real. But today the laser immitations have successfully shown the same. Today the raw dZi from the factory comes with supplier endorsement and grading.

Therefore, the safest way to get a real dZi is to ensure that the source or supplier is reliable. And there is currently one manufacturer that is widely recognized worldwide as the producer of real dZi. Each "raw piece of the dZi" produced by this manufacturer has its trademark that consist of a hologram sticker logo with "a triangle inside a square inside a sunflower". And there are three grades given to the dZis which are the silver, gold and double gold. The specific criteria of grading are not revealed by the manufacturer and unclear. But the price difference is significantly different which equates to 1x, 2x and 3x for silver, gold and double gold.

Feng Shui Bestbuy is a certified agent that carries the real dZi from the manufacturer. We promise the best to our customers and we only get the Double Gold quality. There is a higher price one has to pay for the better grades but it would be a worthwhile investment because it stays with one a lifetime.

The Fake Dzi

Be careful: Not all new dzis are real. Some do not have the patterns etched, but instead the patterns were painted on the bead. These are not considered as real dzi. And some beads are not even real "agate", but instead made of synthetic glass that are as good as a piece of glass. As a rule of thumb, remember that a properly etched dzi will never be able to look perfect. The etch lines will follow the crystalines, scars, impurities and internal cracks of a genuine agate bead.

However, with advancement in technology, even a dZi that looked seemingly etched could be a fake dZi. Today, the market had started to get flooded with lasered dZi. Therefore, one has to be more careful with their presence. They may look exactly the same as the real dZi and can hardly be differentiated.

Certification is Crucial

It is crucial to ensure proper endorsement and originality in your dZi purchase. The customer reserves the right not to get cheated. All dZis from Feng Shui Bestbuy will come with a "Certificate of Authenticity".

Degree of Perfection

The degree of perfection varies from one piece to another. It has to be noted that the dZi is not graded according to its degree of perfection. As long as it is intact, not broken into half or scarred badly, slight stone weathering marks, chip or damage is acceptable by dZi collectors. In fact, most collectors are madly in search for beads with:
1. Cinnabar dots - considered sacred as the dZi bead had attained certain meditative level of power.
2. Circular dragon vein - lines that grow within the bead with time mysteriously and known to give talismatic value.
3. Weathering marks - corrosion on surface of the beads revealing the boundaries of crystalization of the stone.

Scientific and Medical Properties of Dzi

      A real dZi bead is made from agate with over 10 minerals are mined from Himalayan mountains. This is also known as shangrila where the heaven is found on earth. The main ingredient of dzi is actually agate, but the difference is it possesses stronger magnetic energy compared to normal crystals. Its voltage can go as high as 15 volts. Some of our customers claimed that they feel dizzy, overly energetic and strong when they first wear the bead. This is because it takes a few days for our body energy to adjust to this strong magnetic field possessed by the dzi. It can also increase your metabolism, make you healthy, make you loose weight and increase your blood circulation.

      For those who are familiar with crystals, we know that agate is very powerful to expel off negative energies and nourishes your good fortune luck. On enhancement of health, it helps relieve tiredness, improve blood circulation and nourishes the root chakra. It would stimulate analytical capabilities and enhance your inherent talents. Agate is sometimes called the Firestone and will encourage good luck to flow to you. It promotes prosperity by making you more energetic and sociable and can greatly benefit business and personal matters too.
