Cintamani-shaped ornaments come in six types: those with nothing attached; those with a flame design; those with an incarnate Buddha design; those with a cloud design; those with a flowery design; and those on bronze plates. With the exception of those with a flame design, all the others were made of crystal inlaid on a Buddha statue and, in most cases, the crystal cintamanis were placed on clouds to represent the splendor of the heavenly world.
