- A DharmaShop exclusive mala made with stunning petrified wood beads from Madagascar, dark wood beads, and finished with a handcrafted pendant from Nepal.
- The traditional Tibetan style pendant features a parasol design, one of the Eight Auspicious Symbols that represents protection, with inlaid pieces of red faux coral.
- Because it is from the earth and was once organic material, petrified wood is known for its strong grounding properties and calming energies. The dark wood beads are also known to provide healing, stability and grounding energy.
Petrified wood occurs when wood is fossilized and turned into stone. The beautiful colors that you see in this stone are made by the different minerals that have replaced the woods structure. The petrified wood mined in Madagascar is said to have been deposited over 200 million years ago!
Mala measures approximately 32 inches around. Beads are 8mm. Pendant is about 1.25 inch tall with bale.
