Bonri Mountain is located on the northern bank of Yarlung Tsangpo River in Nyingchi County with an elevation of 4500 meters.
Bonri Mountain is highly respected by followers of Bon religion, which has been wide-spread before Buddhism came into Tibet. Aqong Jayyo (a believer of Bon) was the first one who dared to oppose to Buddhism. Padmasambhava who became the master of Buddhism later tried to blow down the village by controlling wind with his supernatural power, yet failed. Padmasambhava then attempted to push Bonri Mountain into Niyang River to wipe out Bon completely, but Aqong Jayyo stopped him. From them on, many pilgrims of Bon would come here every year to circle the mountain to show deity and sincerity.
In Tibet, there is a saying goes “Circle the holy lake in Goat Year; circle the holy mountain in Horse Year.” Every Aug. of Horse Year in Tibetan calendar, pilgrims would gather together to have a huge celebration.
The SIGIL Tibetan Quartz named after Bonri Mountain comes to life with one primary termination point and a cluster of 4 twins by its side in celebration. The pendant is made entirely by hand by the designer, using epoxy putty and copper wire to create an organic, seamless base to showcase the one-of-a-kind mineral. The piece is strung on a 25” stainless steel chain with lobster claw opening.
