Have you ever met the beads with ends of emerald-green color? They are very rare. This is a special color of agate. These beads are mostly from old samples. They are very rare and highly-prized in Eastern Asia.
This is not painted agate, as is the case with cheap green souvenir dZi-samples! You can see the cheap green dZi-beads at the picture on the right hand: these are mass production stones, which are presented in large quantities in the markets of Eastern Asia. They should not be confused with rare collectible items. 😉
Now look at the picture below.
Such dZi-beads will be a jewel of any collection.
