This sleek and bold 108 bead mala is made with hematite beads that are cool to the touch. Matte onyx spacers and brass accents provide a subtle contrast to the hematite beads.
Hematite and onyx are associated with the Root Chakra. Hematite is often used to stabilize and ground, as well as for protection. It is an excellent stone to dissolve negativity while preventing you from absorbing the negativity of others.
Onyx is also worn to defend against negative energy that is directed at you; it fortifies self confidence and responsibility.
Mala measures approximately 34 inches around. Beads are about 8mm. Made in Nepal.
Nice reassuring weight and understated in its beauty. Have not had it long enough to comment on its use as a mala nor for the particular quality of the stones to protect from negativity, but am hopeful.
