Our exclusive DharmaShop 108 bead mala is hand strung in Detroit and assembled with elements sourced directly from Nepal. It features smooth matte Tiger Eye beads, rudraksha seed beads, and beautiful lotus seed spacers that have been cut and sanded.
A traditional Tibetan copal (new amber) pendant placed in a hand etched silver plated setting, along with a tan tassel, finishes the mala. Made from natural tree resins, copal provides a much more affordable alternative to true baltic amber. Amber is known to be a healing stone; balancing emotions, clearing the mind, and releasing negative energy. A warm stone, it aids in relieving stress by diminishing phobias and fears.
Tiger eye is believed to bring wisdom, clarity of thought, and protection to the wearer. With a fierce, dynamic energy, the tiger eye stone is a protective stone, thus called the tiger's eye!
Mala measures approximately 27 inches around. Matte Tiger Eye beads are 6mm, rudraksha beads are 8mm, lotus seed beads are about 8mm. Pendant measures approximately 1 inch, tassel is about 2 1/2 inches long.
