The meaning of the Tibetan word “dzi” translates to “shine, brightness, clearness, splendor”. In Chinese’s, the bead is called “heaven’s bead” or “heaven’s pearl” (天珠).

Dzi bead is a bead stone of mysterious origin worn as part of a necklace a and sometimes as a bracelet. In several Asian cultures, including that of Tibet, the bead is considered to provide positive spiritual benefit. These beads are generally prized as protective amulets and are sometimes ground up into a powder to be used in traditional Tibetan medicine. Beads subject to this process have small “dig marks” where a portion of the bead has been scraped or shaved away to be ground into the medicine.

Beads that are broken are believed to have a diluted benefit, because they have taken the brunt of the force that it is assumed would have otherwise impacted the wearer.
