- Our newest mala from the Strength and Healing Collection! This exclusive DharmaShop design is made with a combination of high quality labradorite and lava rock beads.
- A labradorite skull pendant from Nepal finishes the mala. The pendant is completely hand carved and detailed with precision before being fixed in an intricately etched sterling silver setting.
In Buddhism, the skull is often recognized as a symbol of impermanence. This mala is an amazing way to reflect on impermanence in your daily practice. It is a powerful reminder to be here now and to live in the present moment; because nothing is permanent, everything is possible.
Labradorite is believed to open the wearer up to their natural intuition and creativity. Its beauty and layered color comes from the thousands of years of mineral plates sliding together, piling on top of each other to create the many lines and veins of colors deep into the stone.
Lava rock is known for its grounding properties and is wonderful for calming the emotions. It is created from the center of the earth and therefore is fantastic for stabilizing and grounding the Root Chakra.
Mala measures approximately 27 inches around with an adjustable sliding knot. Labradorite beads are 8mm, lava rock beads are 6mm. Pendant measures about 1.5 inches tall from bale and 0.75 inch wide.
