The mala is beautiful and feels wonderful to wear. The texture of the lava rock is quite unique, with the roughness of the beads creating a soft presence on my skin that is quite cool. The artistry of the lava stones with the rosewood beads produces a very natural look and feel. I am wearing mine on my wrist and it wraps four times with some slack, which is quite comfortable. I enjoy the weight of it which is heavy enough to keep an awareness of its presence but not too much to distract. Once again the artistry of the mala is wonderful, as are the others I have purchased from dharma shop and I am pleased to support artists who produce authentic pieces that represent their culture, which translate beautifully into a piece that I can wear and foster a peaceful presence. Namaste
Great to have it ! Beautiful design, perfect size and the elastic thread make it easy to adjust to my wrist...I ware it everyday.
