Vajra 5 inches long I bought this and had no idea what it was! I read many things about it. Interesting. Means "the hard or mighty one" Tibet means indestructible, hardness, brilliance like diamond, which cannot be cut or broken. Postulated by the sky-god Thor. Zeus, and and thunderbolts of Jupiter! A Buddhist legend Shakyamuni took this weapon from Indra and forced closed the prongs making it a peaceful weapon. This by Nitin Kumar of Exotic India!!!? Any other information appreciated!!! Don

    Does it have any area that looks like it would have been attached to something?

    hello! it doesn't seem to be attached by anything that I can see. thanks

    I was just wondering if it could have been attached to something else like say as an ornamental drape tie-back?
