One of our newest malas has 108 beads that have been individually knotted and hand strung with a knot tied in between each bead. A matching 4 inch tassel finishes the mala. It includes 108 8mm tiger eye beads and features a larger 10mm guru bead from which the tassel hangs. Hand knotted malas are some of our most requested and popular items, as they are great for meditation practice.
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! All tiger eye stones represent strength and grounding energy in different degrees, depending on the color—golden yellow, deep red, and anything in-between. It stimulates taking action, and helps you to make decisions with discernment and understanding, and unclouded by your emotions.
Mala measures approximately 40 inches around. Beads are 8mm, guru bead is 10mm. Handmade in Nepal.
