Dzi (pronounced zee) beads are made from agate, and may have decorative symbols composed of circles, ovals, squares, waves or zig zags, stripes, lines, diamonds, dots, and various other archetypal and symbolic patterns. Colors mainly range from brown to black, with the pattern usually in ivory white. Dzi beads can appear in different colors, shapes, and sizes; the surface is usually smooth and waxy, presumably resulting from wear over a long period of time. Sometimes the natural patterns (usually "layered" swirls) of the agate can be seen underneath or behind the decorative symbols and designs, and sometimes not. The meaning of the Tibetan word "dzi" translates to "shine, brightness, clearness, splendor. (Wikipedia)
