Tibetan Bodhi Bead Bracelet with Carnelian Agate
Bodhi Tree beads with a 12mm Black Tourmaline center stone on a hand-knotted adjustable cord bracelet.
These Tibetan antique prayer beads that were collected by myself on the Tibetan Plateau. They are seeds from the Bodhi Tree which is the tree that the Buddha sat under when he achieved enlightenment. They have a wonderful patina from being worn for many years and so do not wash to preserve the oils.
