One of our newest malas has 108 hand strung and individually knotted beads, and includes a 4 inch matching tassel at the bottom. It incorporates stunning 8mm lapis beads and finishes with a larger 12mm lapis guru bead from which the tassel hangs.
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 meditation. Lapis is a prominent third eye chakra stone, that will develop your intuition as well as amplifying and expanding psychic visions and clairvoyant abilities. It stimulates the desire for knowledge, truth and understanding, and aids the process of learning.
