Some people say that the crystals from which
the Naga Eyes are carved are found along the Mekhong
in the days following the appearance of the Naga
Fireballs: we are dealing with, therefore, a crystal
out of the ordinary, direct from the Nagas'
treasury! I have
several specimens of this mineral in my personal
collection, and can say without doubt that they
resemble no ordinary crystal.
Naga eyes are sometimes discovered by certain
Buddhist masters residing unsmelted in a rare
species of geode - "magic" - found in caves in
northern Thailand and Laos. These geodes, can be
found only by designated ones who have achieved a
high spiritual level, and that only after a long
ceremony which entails the lighting of a sacred fire
to "fire" the geodes in sacred flames, thus
rendering them into a liquid form from which naga
eyes may be created.
