Natural Agate (Akik)

The number "eight" is considered to be the most fortuitous number in Chinese and other Asian cultures.

According to Lillian Too, the Queen of feng-shui, the number 8 is widely regarded as a universally lucky number. This is because phonetically, in many dialects, it sounds like 'growth with prosperity.'

The word for "eight" (八 Pinyin: bā) sounds similar to the word which means "prosper" or "wealth" (发 - short for "发财", Pinyin: fā). In regional dialects the words for "eight" and "fortune" are also similar, e.g. Cantonese "baat" and "faat".

What's in " 8 " around the world?

  • Jewish boys have a circumcision on the 8 day after birth.
  • The Petronas Twin Towers in Malaysia has 88 Floors.
  • The Beijing Olympics was scheduled to open on August 8th, 2008 - making the date read 8/8/8 at 8 seconds and 8 minutes past 8 pm (local time).

In Chinese communities around the world, eight is considered the most fortuitous of numbers, making it much coveted for addresses, phone/fax numbers and bank accounts, now we're not talking about "eight" created or given by man but we're talking about "The Hidden Eight" which is carved inside an agate ... can you see the hidden eight? ... no? see other ... how? ... still can't see the " 8 " ? ... OK ... last picture ... see through the center of the stone ... ... what? you still can't find the "8" ... OK one more picture ... (click the "8") 8 ...
