Onyx and Om Mani Naga Shell Wrist Mala



  • A revamp and re-issue of an all-time DharmaShop favorite we last sold in 2017.
  • It features powerful matte onyx beads, modern brass spacers, and an incredible Om Mani Padme Hum bead.
  • The centerpiece is a hand-carved naga shell Om Mani Padme Hum (mantra of compassion) bead whose ink will fade with time as the carvings remain.

We first sourced these incredible hand-carved Om Mani beads in 2014 after finding them on a team trip to Kathmandu.  Unfortunately, we ran into some supply issues with the hand-carved beads around the time of the earthquake in Nepal, and sold our last bracelet in 2017.  Recently the DharmaShop team in Nepal found an even better source for these beads and made sure to send them our way.  The Om Mani mantra invokes the powerful benevolent attention and blessings of Chenrezig, the embodiment of compassion.

Onyx is worn to defend negative energy that is directed at you; it fortifies self confidence and responsibility.  It alleviates worry, tension, and nervousness and eliminates confusion and nightmares.


Available in two sizes on stretchy cord. Small is 6.5-6.75" around, Large 7-7.25" around. Beads are 8mm.
