Luang Phor Ngern Turtle Amulets.


Essentially there are two different  types of Turtle amulets  those carved from ivory and those created from sacred alloys. These amulets are sometimes a cause of confusion amongst collectors and it is important from the onset to distingusih between the two.

1. Ivory amulets were blessed by Luang Phor Ngern, Wat Donyaihom
2. The sacred alloy amulets were blessed by LP Ngern, Wat Bangklan.

Luang Phor Ngern - Wat Donyaihom

These are very distinctive, hand carved ivory turtles which are usually enclosed within a simple silver frame. There are a number of variants to be found differing by the number of circles to the turtles back. Another distinguishing feature is the yant to the base which also varies from pim to pim.

LP Ngern of Wat Donyaihom or Phraratchathammaphon Suengphrakhrueang was considered a great and merciful monk. Known for his strict adherence to the Tripitaka and extremely knowledgeable in Wicha and Kaata Akom.

His followers believed that he possessed the power to accomplish Apinya or dark magic. People who are in possession of his amulets  have on many occasions reported  amazing good fortune



Below is a common variant of the LP Ngern, Donyaihom, turtle pim enclosed within a silver frame. As with most ivory carved amulets no specific date is recorded other than they were carved during his life time which in the case of this amulet would be approximately BE 2500 to BE 2520



Luang Phor Ngern - Wat Bangklan

These pims are closely associated with welth, fortune and sudden riches to the worshipper. It is believed that Luang Phor Ngern used the "wicha" or magic known as "Ramiranma Sangtaoruen" to bless these pims which can call upon an ancient power of Paya Dtao Ruen.

They are made from the sacred alloy known as Loh ha and are dated to approximately BE 2460.



These turtle amulets are considerably more expensive than the Donyaihom pims, typically costing anywhere from 1,000.00 - 4,000.00 USD depending on beauty and condition.
