Thai monks make little ceramic Buddha amulets to sell in order to support their Wats (temples). They use the same amulet materials to make these beads. These great, traditional beads are made by hand, strung on durable cord, and blessed with 24 karat gold leaf. When these beads are blessed, they are sprinkled with gold. The gold will wear off in time and with use.
This mala measures approximately 38 inches around and contains 9mm beads.
