This beads are called “moon and star” bodhi beads and are made from a plant called Daemonorops margaritae. This plant grows in Southern China, India, Nepa, Bhutan and Bangladesh, but not Tibet, however, a research study found many of these beads- very old- in Tibet. Part of the reason seeds of plants were used for prayer beads and considered to be so sacred in Tibet is the high altitude and the fact many of them don’t grow there and had to be imported, making them even more valuable and rare.
