Archan Tim and Archan Nong decided to make their own amulets that they wanted to give away to all donors. They traveled to a lot of places that were associated with Luang Phor Thuad (LP Thuat). Such as where he was ordained, where he used to stay, where he was buried etc. and collected all the holy soils from those places. Most important, they were actively in meditation to ask for approval from LP Thuad to collect the soils for the making of the B.E.2497 Luang Phor Thuad amulets. Meditation was conducted in all the holy places that they had traveled to. These make the holy soils even more scarce. Furthermore, they are mixed with many herbs’ materials (108 types).

This is not phet na thang, phet na thang actually is 1 kind of tree( in thai they call 'ton tin pet' which is mean 'duck leg tree') grow on the stone. 'Phet', mean diamond; 'na', mean infront and 'thang', mean the tick metal they use to hit sword. But many people misunderstand, most of them was Chinese community. The tree grow on the stone is almost impossible, that why few people really know Pet Na Thang, but take the cheap stone and sell as it. This type of stone i can buy for USD10 per KG. But the real Pet Na Thang you can't even buy it with money.

hi Suraksakh
I think you are referring to this post http://thailandamulets.blogspot.com/2009/08/thuad-ha-chea-be-2538-by-luang-phor.html

The article is translated from a Thai magazine and this is first time i heard about the actual material behind the lp deang thuad was 'ton tin pet' :)

Thanks for your valuable comments.

I cant write nor read in thai but 'ton tin pet' is growing everywhere but it hardly grow on top of the stone. We'd found it once in Narathiwat jungle, our guru and few of us was there and we took the wood and invited the 'spirit' to come with us. We'd carved the wood for puja.
