I love the feel of these beads, can do with out the Buda head, makes the set to heavy. But all in all I really like the feel.

its a beautiful well made mala although it looks much darker than on the photos in the web
I found the matte lapis lazuli Medicine Buddha mala as beautiful in person as I thought it was when judging by the picture. Since I got it, I find that I am selecting mainly clothing items that match this mala so I can wear it over and over:) I am not using this mala for counting although I think it would work well, particularly for smaller hands.
