A very nice quality and affordable alternative to bodhi seeds or gemstones. This rosewood mala is hand strung in Nepal with white heart coral (white coral beads dyed) and pressed turquoise nuggets to create a beautiful and easy to use mala that is just the right size.
Associated with the heart chakra, rosewood is known for its compassionate and healing energies. Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man’s history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. It is a stone of protection, strong and opaque, yet soothing to the touch, healing to the eye, as if carved from an azure heaven and slipped to earth. Its unique shade of blue, often blue-green, lends it name, Turquoise, to all things of this tranquil hue. The delicate veining or mottled webbing in cream or brown is inherent to the stone and serves to enhance its character.
Measures approximately 34 inches around and contains 9mm beads.
