1) What should I look for when buying my personal dzi?
Always remember that dzi is a lifetime blessing gemstone. It will stay with you for many generations if it is well taken care of. Best quality, genuine and authentic dzi is a good investment. Do spend as much time on this website if you can to get good knowledge and how to use the dzi.
One way is to read through the ‘Definition of Dzi' to see which dzi will bring most blessings to you. Another way is to intuitively choose the one that they feel most attracted to. Ask your inner feelings and always trust your own judgment and eye sight of what you need and which bead attracts you most. Take 30 seconds at least to look at that particular dzi and how you feel about it.
Seek for sellers who can explain all the motifs and design to you. There are over 30 types of dzi motifs catering for different walks of life of each individual. So, it is very important to get the correct one. This is also to ensure that you use the full potential of your dzi.
2) How do I distinguish a fake dzi from a genuine dzi?
Buy you bead from a reputable seller that is specialized in Dzi only. Make sure that they do not sell many other products. Only buy from sellers with many years experience, specialized in dzis only and is able to give you answers, after-sales service, advice armed with sound knowledge of dzi. All antique dzi must come with a quality guarantee card with identity code number from the company. Do not hesitate to ask questions if you should have doubt.
Bear in mind that some sellers themselves are unaware and can mistakenly sell you a fake or imitation dzi because of lack experience and high cost of getting genuine dzi. It is important to ask for certification (only for antique dzis) upon purchasing. All dzi from us comes with certification.
All genuine dzi are different in shape, size and motif. Authentic dzi are never perfect because of its weathering mark (wormlike), waxy or sheen effect and natural line appearing. Do not be surprise if the dzi changes its form after wearing for some time because dzi is a living gemstone that changes according to your body's ‘qi' or karma.
The REAL OR FAKE Dzi?
There are also the FAKE or IMITATION dzi that has flooded the market over the years. Many unsuspecting people are hoax into buying cheap imitation dzi. This happens when the seller is sometimes not armed with enough knowledge to distinguish the real dzi from the fake ones. But with much information on hand, buyers interest are protected and will be able to detect fake dzis.
These are reproduction made of stones, hard plastics, cement, glass, yak bones and other replica materials. The design on the dzi looked painted on the outside, treated, usually too matt or too shiny and some will not have any weathering marks on them. A replica is a cheap synthetic or yak bone reconstruction, selling for only USD2 - 10 a piece in the Silk Routes, China, Taiwan and even in Malaysia. They may have the design features of real Dzi but they're complete imitations. Do not purchase this kind of Dzi.
3) Why dzi collectors say it is an investment?
Besides the factors of rarity and quality, market price speculation on these short supply treasures has pushed up their valuations over the years. Dzi collector and wearers the same, should have the mentality that the Dzi is also an investment, but at the same time it is a treasure that will bring priceless blessing and credit to its owner.
Our price is kept reasonably low due to our DIRECT (no 3 rd party) and vast resources and goodwill friendship with our Himalayan friends who go very far to get the rarest and best Dzis available. We vow to put all our effort in getting the most unique Dzi in the world in which we guarantee our clients will not get at any other store.
Valuations of dzi are determined by age, quality, sheen effect, weathering mark, cinnabar dots (will grow from inner to the surface with age) rarity and uniqueness.
4) How do I feel the dzi's energy?
Some individual with keener senses may feel a slight jolt, pulsation, numbness or giddiness when initially handling the dzi. No instrument in the world can choose the best dzi for your good-self. To detect the best dzi for you is your very own body and hands. Place the ends of the dzi between your thumb and third finger.
These gems have its own powers to communicate with you…it calls you. Sounds weird but from our experience, it just happens naturally though it may sound illogical. This is only the surface of some experience we share with our clients. There is many more information on how you can use your dzi to its highest potential.
Nowadays, these gems are used for holistic purposes, mainly for the New Age era, those into spirituality, energy practices, "chi gong", reiki, practitioners, spiritual gurus, holistic healers and meditators. It is how the energy works on the body, how it balances the system and scientifically speaking, its how they stimulate blood vessels, how they work on the chakra points, healing of aura weakness, energy meridians, lymph nodes, bloodstream etc. Some clients experience a clearer eye sight, burst of energy and internal happiness.
5) What are the feelings to expect the first few days of wearing dzi?
The feedback from our clients varies from sudden burst of energy, urge to drink more water, flowing in of good luck and opportunities, radiant appearance on the skin and etc.
Some feel minimal dizziness are the few common outcomes too. Do take note if you feel slight twinge in areas of your body, put some attention into that area. Email us your symptoms and we will help you with a further explanation on what the dzi is trying to tell you.
6) How do I know if the dzi have ceased its power on me?
If you drop your dzi on hard flooring or knocked it against something hard and caused it to slightly chip or damage, it is acceptable. Unless of course if the dzi is broken 1/3 or ½, which mean it has protected you from danger or calamities and have loss its talismanic properties. DO NOT keep the broken dzi. Do a returning ritual where you can bury it to the ground outside your home or throw it into the river with a grateful feeling of what it has done for you. After all, the earth is where it is originated. You may replace it with another dzi with your current situation.
7) What is the best way to wear a dzi and get the most out of it?
zis are preferably worn on the body always. Wear a necklace in an upright vertical position or bracelet touching your wrist. Bigger beads can be placed near to you on your work desk or home for positive energy. Dzi energy will never cease (unless broken) if well taken care of.
Belief and communication with your dzi is very important. Channel a message with your mind to your dzi. Dzi brings the highest effect if blessed by a guru or a learnt teacher of any religious order. Only genuine dzi can achieve these effects. Otherwise, do get a dzi from sellers who already have them blessed. This mystical gem is known to manifest wonderful experiences to our clients.
You can use dzi to channel energy and thoughts to higher being. It can be used for self healing of the body and heart, wishes, good vibe and many other usages.
8) How do I care for my dzi?
Dzi should be treated like any other precious gemstone you are wearing. Although not much is needed to care for your dzi, there are some little thing that you can take note of. Do not step or leave it on the floor or a dirty place. If you have an altar at home, leave it there overnight to have it re-charged and purify. Another way is to use a Tibetan singing bowl with mantras on it or place it in a pure crystal geode. If you have pure sandal wood stick incense, place your dzi next to it.
We are now working with some monasteries and friends to extract Tibetan herbal incense oil for dzi cleansing. The oil is pure and natural which contains minerals from the Himalayan Mountains. Keep in touch with us on this.
