This product is very nice and I'm happy to support the Tibetan or Napalese worker who produced it.
These beads are larger and heavier than expected but lovely all the same, strung to easily enable movement when counting mantra
I was afraid that this could potentially look cheesy, but it is really lovely! The work is nicely done with the inlaid turquoise, coral, and copper. The red of the yak bone beads is a deep, earthy shade. The two sided guru bead is coral on one side and turquoise on the other. The mala has a very textural look and the beads feel good. I am very happy that I decided to try this!
These malas are stunning. So beautiful and intricate work.
