A mala is used as a meditation tool. In japa meditation, a mantra is repeated 108 times. A mala necklace has 108 stones. A quarter mala has 27 stones which means you can make 4 turns around the mala to complete your meditation. They are perfect if you prefer to have a smaller piece of jewelry.
This mala is made with 8mm faceted Agate stones. The guru stone is an oblong facet cut Jasper and the mini tassel is made of cream and brown cotton cotton. It is strung on beige C-Lon thread and hand knotted between each stone.
Agate is a stone of strength. It balances the yin and yang, female and male energies within all of us. It provides protection, healing and calm and can help remove blockages from chakras.
Agate is associated with Gemini and Virgo zodiac signs. It is supportive of the Root, Heart, Third Eye and Crown Chakras.
