A truly exclusive 108 bead mala from our new DharmaShop collection that includes dumortierite and onyx beads, a robust Mastodon fossil bead, and a hand carved lapis Medicine Buddha pendant. The Medicine Buddha is a deity of compassion and healing. He is believed to alleviate suffering for mental and physical illness. Often his image is shown with rays of lapis lazuli light radiating from his crown.
Dumortierite is a stone of patience, opening the doors of insight and activating the third eye chakra. It is a powerful healing gemstone that helps you to take the necessary steps to overcome hardships and find solutions to any problems you may be facing. Also, it is very stimulating to the brain and brings enhanced intellectual abilities as it assists with all mental skills. Onyx stabilizes, heals, and strengthens your root chakra so you may become more grounded and productive in the physical world.
A prehistoric Mastodon fossil bead hangs from the center of the mala, along with a hand carved lapis Buddha pendant that has been fixed inside of an intricate silver setting. Lapis is said to promote self awareness, enlightenment and open the mind to all possibilities. It is also considered to be a powerful stone when used for mediation.
