I would take pictures of mine, but they truly don't do this mala justice. The specturm of colors warms the mind as much as the weight of it provides a sense of a grounding, gentle strength. I haven't spent many hours with it yet, but the time I have been with it have been meaningful and appreciated. I look forward to enjoying this mala for many years to come. After receiving this mala and discovered how well-made and beautiful it was, I immediately got back online and purchased the matched bracelet. As with all products we purchase online and can't see and touch for our own inpsection, I can guarantee that if you pick this mala for your own uses that you won't be disappointed in any way.
