The Dalai Lama wears a Tiger Eye mala similar to this one. Appreciated for their color, clarity, and smooth texture, these beads can be worn on the left wrist, wrapped 4-5 times, when not in use. This mala is finished with a simple, beautiful hand-tied knot tassel. This is definitely our most popular gemstone mala!!
Tiger Eye is believed to bring wisdom, clarity of thought, and protection to the wearer. With a fierce, dynamic energy, the tiger eye stone is a protective stone, thus called the tiger's eye! All tiger eye stones represent strength and grounding energy in different degrees, depending on the color—golden yellow, deep red, and anything in-between. It stimulates taking action, and helps you to make decisions with discernment and understanding, and unclouded by your emotions.
This mala measures approximately 32 inches in circumference and contains 8mm Tiger Eye beads. Handmade in the US by Tibetan artisans.
