In the old days, places called "sky jewel banks" were established in Tibet. The rare "jewels" were sometimes used as currency, which earned them the nickname "money jewels". Today, these sky jewels are still precious as collectors piece. Jewels that are two or three thousand years old are in the highest demand. At Cai Shi Relics, customers can find these age-old sky jewels, as well as a collection of new ones found in old mines. The jewels come in many colors like: warm red, white, black, green, and inky gray. Each one holds a different meaning; some represent wealth and fortune, some are for peace and luck, and some are simply for more blessings and improved magnetic energy. These sky jewels are made into bracelets, necklaces, accessories, name chops, belts and Feng Shui decorative elements. You can buy them to wear or to appreciate as art pieces. The prices range from a couple hundred to hundreds of thousands of NT dollars, depending on the items grade and history.
