This is a rare amulet by LP Taab that was made 50 years ago from one of the strings of beads he wore. While sounding odd this is a fantastic source of energy from Luang Phor Taab as HE is in these because he used the beads every day while chanting and saying kata. Personal items of famous monks (his robes, hair and tears in particular) are highly revered in Thailand and then he added the green see pung as well. This is a fantastic amulet that brings Metta and Good Fortune and the colour of the See Pung is excellent, which affects value, as does the lovely silver case. It is rare to find the beads.
The Green See Pung of Luang Phor Taab is legendary and I get it whenever I see an affordable piece as it is akin to being from another planet. Luang Phor Taab only made this product towards the end of his long life, which was predominantly spent as a monk, and he took a decade to collect the items he wanted to make a see pung from and kept these items on his shrine to build their power through daily blessings. When he finally released it to the public, word of its efficiency in bringing good fortune spread like wildfire and in no time he has people travelling from Bangkok to get some from him, which was quite a feat around 50 years ago, especially to the wilds of NE Thailand.
The funny thing was that anyone who came to the temple wanting this product was kept waiting, sometimes for days as he would not just sell it to anyone. There are quite a few stories of Luang Phor refusing the requests of very important people unless they spent a few days in his temple, which sounds quite funny. The huge demand for this product was because of its ability to bring wealth, at which it is legendary.
The effect of the See Pung being present is incredible, giving any amulet he made 'an other world' feeling and in many ways it is as Thailand 50 years ago is a very different place to what it is now. He often also added a ball of this to the front of other amulets he made and the range of his works is quite large, but finding them is not easy.
A nice size in its silver case at 0.9" and I have managed to find his original kata.
A magical relic of a bygone age.

There are many highly desirable items from some of the famous old Thai monks, which include their hair, tears, robes and even the betel nut they chewed because HE is in them. These items carry great Metta.
