A great looking mala! I love the feel of the Raktu beads! My only complaint is the stretchy cord it is on is VERY stretchy! I'm sure it is stronger than it looks but it's very thin and because it is so stretchy it is constantly catching on things and I am just afraid that it is going to break on me. If it were strung on an adjustable cord like the Amber Coral Rosewood Mala (which I also have and LOVE) it would just about be the perfect wrist mala.
