Thunder Iron Thokcha (Tibetan: ཐོག་ལྕགས, གནམ་ལྕགས) are tektites and meteorites which serve as amulets.Typically high in iron content, also called Thunder Iron,Cold Iron.
Thogchags or Thokcha are worn as amulets by Tibetans, specifically people of the Himalayan regions.
Created in several forms, they often depict tantric deities, sacred animals, auspicious symbols, and mantras. Many represent ritual supports such as a mirror, phurba, or vajra. Some pieces may be abstract in nature, and the meaning of the form has since been lost in antiquity.
Other Thokcha were simply used as ancient arrow points, buckles, body armour, or even old horse trappings.
