Bright and bold DharmaShop design! This wrist mala contains matte turquoise stones accented with rudraksha beads and a fish charm.
Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man’s history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. It is a stone of protection, strong and opaque, yet soothing to the touch, healing to the eye, as if carved from an azure heaven and slipped to earth. Its unique shade of blue, often blue-green, lends it name, Turquoise, to all things of this tranquil hue. The delicate veining or mottled webbing in cream or brown is inherent to the stone and serves to enhance its character. In Tibetan Buddhism, the fish symbolizes the auspiciousness of all living beings in a state of fearlessness, without danger of drowning while moving spontaneously from place to place.
Strung on durable stretchy cord, this wrist mala measures approximately 6 inches around. Includes 8mm matte turquoise and rudraksha beads and a 6 by 16mm silver plated fish charm.
