A mala is a set of beads commonly used by Hindus and Buddhists for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra or the name or names of a deity. They are sacred and beautiful and can be worn as a necklace or wrapped around your wrist multiple times. Malas are made with 108 beads and a guru bead. They can be made with fewer beads, such as 18, 27, or 54, which would require the user to make several rotations to complete their full meditation. The number 108 has spiritual significance as it is believed that we have 108 lines of energy in our bodies which converge to form the anahata, or the heart chakra
This mala is made with 8mm beads of Black Obsidian, Dendritic Jasper, and Frosted Snow Quartz, along with a guru bead of Zebra Jasper and a black silk tassel.
Obsidian is a stone of transformation and strength, Dendritic and Zebra Jaspers are stones of balance, and Snow Quartz is a stone of clarity and peacefulness.
***Every mala is unique and made after an order has been placed. Yours will look very similar to the one pictured but will not be exact. This makes your piece of one a kind and meant just for you. Depending on the materials needed, your piece may be completed within a couple of days or it may require 2-4 weeks if the beads are not currently on hand.***
