If you traveling in Tibet, except to visit famous places there, the other thing you have to is shopping. Tibet has many excellent handicrafts and artistic, and one of the most famous things is Dzi bead.

Dzi bead’s literal meaning is heaven pearls, in Tibet, it was regarded as the gift given by God. Such beads were etched black-and-white or brown-and-white, with symbols comprised of circles, ovals, square, waves stripes, lines, and various other symbolic patterns. Sometimes it looks like an eye, so some people think that there a magic power in Dzi bead. To the Tibetans, each of these symbols represents a specific meaning. They are the precious possession to the Tibetan, with so many fascinating stories of its mystical power attributed to it.

Now, in the market the price of Dzi bead is very high due to the low production. Natural Dzi bead is too expensive, most of the Dzi bead in the market are man-made. But bring some back to home as gifts it is also a good choice.
