Ancient and pure dzi beads of Tibet are extremely precious and rare. No matter how many or how few eyes beads bear, all Dzi beads possess the mystic power of bringing luck, warding off evil, stabilizing blood pressure, guarding against apoplexy and enhancing body strength. Owners and wearers of these beads are blessed with unexpected credit, luck and perfection. Dzi beads are unique and collectibles. There are some TIPS found online about how to know Real dzi beads. so
To find out if the Dzi beads is real old or not, just notice some points on Dzi beads. Hold the Dzi beads in your hand and try to notice Some marks on Dzi Skin.

These are weathering marks.They resemble either fish scales or phoenix claws.

2. Sheen:- Age and natural weathering might result in a slightly rugged patina that confuses the reflective light.We can see with our naked eye that there seems to be a layer of oil on the surface of the Dzi.We can call this "oily sheen".Some particularly bright oily sheen can be called "waxy sheen".

3. Cinnabar Dots "Cinnabar Dots" are in fact red speckles that grow from within the body of the Dzi Beads to its surface (see picture Below and left). Not every Dzi has cinnabar dots, and dzi with such cinnabar dots are not necessarily good qulity Dzi Beads.This is the often used as a criterion to identify old Dzi beads.
