Thai monks make little ceramic Buddha amulets to sell to support their Wats (temples) they use the same amulet materials to make beads with buddha figures on them. We have been selling the 108 bead version of this mala for years, and finally offer this stretchy wrist mala with these awesome beads.
When these beads are blessed they are sprinkled with gold. The gold will wear off in time and with use and each bead is coated unevely with gold.
21 - 9mm beads. Approx. 7 inches in circumference.
