These are banded agate beads that closely resemble the ancient Bhaisajyaguru dZi or Suleimani Beads but are a fraction of the price. They are often mistaken for ancient beads because the quality is so good. Despite being newer creations they are not so common. In the past 10 years I have only seen a handful of strands in this quality. They possibly originate from China but were sourced in Nepal.
