Zodiac I Ching Bagua charm trigram Feng Shui bracelet gemstones
I Ching octagon replica coins represent the four elements and four sub-elements of the universe, written as a three-line combination of solid (yang) and open (yin) lines. The four elements, from which all things in the universe originate, are Heaven (Qian), Water (Kan), Earth (Kun), and Fire (Li). The four sub-elements are Mountain (Gen), Wind (Xun), Thunder (Zhen), and Lake (Dui). In the center of the coin is the symbol for Yin Yang, complementary opposites within a larger whole which are necessary for existence. Male/female, dark/light, one cannot exist without the other.
The three-line symbols are called trigrams, and are used in both feng shui and divination. Eight trigrams together form a bagua. Bagua charms are worn to repel evil spirits.
The bracelet shown is medium 7-1/2" (19cm) long; however, I'm happy to make it smaller or larger to fit you. Brass lobster clasp. There are six color combinations for you to choose from, shown in the second picture of the earrings. The earrings DO NOT come with the bracelet; they're just shown so you can see the available colors. If you don't state a color preference, I'll choose for you.
The available combos (see earrings for numbering) are:
1. black onyx, glass, sodalite
2. goldstone (manufactured), glass, poppy jasper
3. orange aventurine, glass, goldstone
4. dumortierite, glass, aventurine

6. snowflake obsidian, glass, black onyx
