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 6mm Apatite beads, a Fluorite guru bead, and a gray silk tassel. It is strung on nylon thread and hand knotted between each stone. Metal marker beads are from Nepal.
Apatite clears away confusion and negativity and stimulates your intellect to expand knowledge and truth. It is a Stone of Manifestation and can be used for personal growth. The stone supports the Throat Chakra, improves concentration and memory skills.
Flourite is a highly protective and stabilizing stone, good for grounding and harmonizing spiritual energy. It can aid the Third Eye and Crown Chakras through increasing one's intuitive abilities and developing a connection to Spirit.
