A note about bone usage: In the Himalayas, it is typical for large animals such as yak or water buffalo to be used for service, food, clothing, utensils, and ritual items. Given the limited amount of resources and the religious practices of the people in the region, it is important that none of the animal goes to waste. These amazing bone beads are handcrafted by artisans who recycle and reuse everything in daily life and spiritual practice.
Adjustable wrist mala measures approximately 6 inches around when fully tightened and opens to about 9 inches. Beads are 8mm, Dzi beads are about 14mm by 10mm.
