This mala is greatly beneficial in my meditations about transition and the unknown. However, because of the stringing and shape of the beads, it is more difficult to use. I use it for breathwork and rely finding the edge of the last bead with my fingers and eyes closed to pull it through. I am getting used to it a bit more but fumbling with it can break my concentration.
One of the best pieces i have seen. Love it. Get compliments everytime i wear it.
