On our trip to Nepal in March of 2019, we worked alongside of our artisans in Kathmandu to help design this earthy mala necklace.
It features 108 moss agate beads on adjustable cord. There is something so alluring about this stone and its variations; each bead is different and contains its own colorful stone pattern and inclusions.
Mala is finished with an antiqued brass Cheppu pendant that Sander, DharmaShop's founder, sourced on his visit to Taiwan in 2018. We brought them directly to our mala makers in Nepal to create this truly exclusive DharmaShop design!
Cheppu, known as the mask of protection, can be seen at the main entrance of many stupas and homes as a protection from all dangers.
Moss agate is a stone of wealth, attracting abundance in all forms, and is extremely beneficial as a body strengthener in times of stress. It is a cleansing crystal,known for its metaphysical properties of balance and abundance. Excellent for the spiritual gardener. When worn close to the body, this stone can bring you strength of heart, mind, body, and soul.
Mala measures approximately 24 inches around. Beads are 6mm. Cheppu pendant is about 0.75 inch.
