It's a dorje and is usually sold with a bell.It is used in Tibetan pujas (prayer)
Dorje is a Tibetan word. It refers to the ritual object that is held in the right hand of a Lama during various religious ceremonies.
Dorje is a common given-name for men in people of Tibetan culture. Hence Phu Dorje, Ang Dorje (young Dorje) and Nima Dorje (Monday Dorje) or, more usually, Dorje.
Symbolically a dorje represents the 'thunderbolt of enlightenment,'
