Our exclusive 108 bead DharmaShop mala features African Bloodstone beads and a Carnelian gemstone Buddha pendant. Each Bloodstone bead is unique and reflects its own unique color matrix. The pendant consists of a hand carved gemstone that is placed inside of a .925 sterling silver setting with bail.
Bloodstone, also known as Heliotrope, is considered to be the most beautiful of the Jaspers. Its energy carries the purity of blood and inherently speaks of life and birth, vitality and strength, passion and courage. It is both mystical and magical, and its virtues are protective and nurturing.
A red faceted Czech glass bead hangs from the center of the mala, along with a hand carved Carnelian Buddha pendant that has been fixed inside of a sterling silver setting. Carnelian promotes confidence and creativity, giving you the courage to make positive life choices. It is believed to protect the wearer from negativity and restore self-esteem and happiness.
Mala measures approximately 26 inches around. Beads are 6mm. Buddha pendant is about 1 1/2 inches tall from bale and 3/4 inch wide.
