For your information:

Buddha's look is neither sad, nor joyful, nor severe. It does not judge or communicate. It sees, and knows everything. It speaks of the heavenly presence and affirms its involvement in daily life. Instead of nose, the Nepalese figure 'one' that looks like a question mark evokes the unique character of Buddha.

Increases the owner's intrinsic magical power, it carries out what you most desire.
This dzi magnifies all the properties of the other beads and unites them into one. Helps the owner to reach the state of demigod through the realisation of his or her dreams.
But the wearer of such a bead must remain pious and pure of heart. .

This type of bead is intended to use as protection in the home, it is kept on an altar as an offering.
