This mala exceeded my expectations. The Beads are a wonderfully deep rich tea color and have a nice feel. No dust or debris left over from drilling holes. The jade has a nice feel and a warm coloring. The spacing is really nice, not to loose, makes counting a breeze. I purchased the antique cooper counters which really complemented the look of the mala. This mala just adds a level of inspiration to my daily practice.
I love this mala, the bead color is perfect, maybe slightly darker than pictured. The space between beads is just right, definitely made by someone who knew what they were doing. I may replace the counters with cooper ones in the future, but overall great quality. I've seen ones that are priced higher so it is very reasonably priced.
This is a fine mala. I would have made it a 5 star, but have been collecting malas from Dharma Shop lately and have gotten many 5 stars. It's perfect for every day use. I agree the color is awesome. I tend to like the darker bead.
