PEMA RAKA "The Tibetan name Pema Raka originates from the sanskrit words Padma meaning Lotus flower and Rakta meaning red or blood -- and so we have a translation of blood lotus or red lotus. Pema Raka beads range from orange to deep red in colour and come in a variety of shapes. They might also display crystalline banding and natural eyes. It is interesting to note that this name is also given to rubies in both the Tibetan Materia Medica and Indian Ayurvedic texts. Tibetan texts also mention that there are nine varieties of ruby. In Tibetan medicine the Pema Raka is believed to protect from evil spirits and to absorb illnesses. please ask for more and detailed photos ! /Detailfotos auf AnfragePayment: Paypal Worldwide shipping with signed for delivery Although not every item has the Best Offer button activated, I am always happy to discuss resonable offers!
