Our exclusive 108 bead DharmaShop mala features a sleek and masculine design. It includes Obsidian and Pyrite beads, a robust Mastodon fossil bead, and an Obsidian Buddha pendant. The Obsidian elements are not only stunning but also unique, as each stone reveals its own translucent banding. They contrast nicely with the Pyrite beads that are cool to the touch. The pendant consists of a hand carved gemstone that is placed inside of an intricate silver-plated brass setting.
Pyrite is masculine in nature, a stone of action, vitality and will, and taps into one’s abilities and potential, stimulating the flow of ideas. It brings confidence and the persistence to carry things through to completion.
