vajra is a ritual weapon symbolizing the properties of a diamond (indestructibility) and a thunderbolt  (irresistible force).

The vajra is a type of club with a ribbed spherical head. The ribs may meet in a ball-shaped top, or they may be separate and end in sharp points with which to stab. The vajra is the weapon of the Indian Vedic rain and thunder-deity Indra, and is used symbolically by the charma traditions of Buddhusm, Jainism and Hindusim often to represent firmness of spirit and spiritual power.

According to the Indian mythology, vajra is considered one of the most powerful weapons in the universe. The use of the vajra as a symbolic and ritual tool spread from the Hindu religion to other religions in India and other parts of Asia.

The vajra is made up of several parts. In the center is a sphere which represents Sunvata the primordial nature of the universe, the underlying unity of all things. Emerging from the sphere are two eight petaled lotus flowers.[23] One represents the phenomenal world (or in Buddhist terms Samsara, the other represents the noumenal world (Nirvana). This is one of the fundamental dichotomies which are perceived by the unenlightened.

Arranged equally around the mouth of the lotus are two, four, or eight creatures which are called makara. These are mythological half-fish, half-crocodile creatures made up of two or more animals, often representing the union of opposites, (or a harmonisation of qualities that transcend our usual experience). From the mouths of the makara come tongues which come together in a point.

The five-pronged vajra (with four makara, plus a central prong) is the most commonly seen vajra. There is an elaborate system of correspondences between the five elements of the noumenal side of the vajra, and the phenomenal side. One important correspondence is between the five "poisons" with the five wisdoms. The five poisons are the mental states that obscure the original purity of a being's mind, while the five wisdoms are the five most important aspects of the enlightened mind. Each of the five wisdoms is also associated with a Buddha figure. 

I source these pieces from the highest altitude in the world, where it is said the veil between heaven and earth is the thinnest and this holds a particularly strong energy

Charge in the full moon.

Cleanse in salt water.

If these are on display in your home ALWAYS have the dagger facing to a window, allowing the energy to exit the space.

These are amazing pieces that work tremendously well.

This size does not come with a case but will be packed with utmost care.
