The deep night color of this natural stone bi disc is intensified by very subtle veining and its texture composed of a meditation of hand-carved Taoist circular symbols. Bi discs have been found in the tombs of Chinese emperors and aristocrats for thousands of years. The discs were typically carved out of jade, which was valued for its mystical properties, and believed to preserve the body and soul. Some believe bi discs to be conduits for communication with ancestors. They are appreciated today for their pure and sculptural forms.
