Description

The god of wealth, identified with a semi-historical figure named Zhao Gongming, is in charge of worldly riches. He is venerated as the “Perfect Lord of the Mysterious Altar of the Tigers and Dragons”; thus, the phrase “Dragon Tiger Silver” refers to his veneration name. If you wear the Dragon Tiger silver on your person, the god of wealth will protect your riches.
