The Parodkror consists of a ball placed within intersecting rings. Slight movement would cause the Parodkror to ring. Is it an astounding piece of art, considering the primitive technology available to artisans of the era (refer to picture below).
Parodkror can vary in size ranging from marble-sized to the diameter of a ping-pong ball, about 1-2 inches. Parodkror can be made of different metals. Some of them are made of gold-plated mixed metal alloys, and some are made of samrit
The purpose of this was to bless the compound and fend off danger and evil. Each time danger or intruders drew near, the Parodkror sent a psychic warning to devotees. And the old saying is that merely placing a Parodkror anywhere can repel evil, curses, inauspicious events, grief and harm for up to 7 yoch
Parodkror are difficult to procure. Most of the Parodkror available on the market were accidentally retrieved during the excavation of places formerly housing temples, a palace, the home of someone with high status, or the ruins of ancient city walls. In some cases, they have been handed down from generation to generation as an heirloom.
Counterfeit Parodkror abound. Many are purposefully aged to give the illusion of being very old. The easiest way to distinguish a real from a fake is to shake it and listen to the sound. If a mere light shake produces a distinctive, clear sound, then the Parodkror is likely to be authentic. If hard shakes are needed to produce a sound, much like when you shake a Phra Kring
