I had a brainstorm and went down to a couple of local bead shops, thinking I might find something suitable for use as in Diamant with the idol variant. Wow, did I hit the mother lode. There are all kinds of beads that are ideal for the purpose!

I bought more than I actually need; four Buddhas in different colors, a jade skull, and several animal figures (including a flying pig), at a cost of 85 cents to 1 dollar each. You can get smaller ones for 50 cents a pop, but the ones I picked are the perfect size to match the other game components. I saw some truly magnificent specimens that ran 3-5 dollars each, but the cheaper ones I bought look really good. I uploaded a couple of images to give you an idea:





I really think these are a great addition, and far cooler than just using a diamond for the idol.
