    Great info for a newbie like me. Is there such thing as "better" quality material in the list for power on the amulets?

    Num Lerk means pour mould or moulded at blessing ceremony...rather than the composition of material...I think u might be referring to Lek Lai if you are referring to the surface having a rainbow effect?

    Thanks Bro Jensen for clarifying. No, the piece I have is not lek lai. It looks like a blackish copper rian but with reddish and greenish surface on most part of its body. I was told it's Num Lerk and I took that as the material composite of the amulet rather than the process of consecration....:thank-you-soldier-baby-emoticon:
