Thai monks make little ceramic Buddha amulets to sell in order 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.
21 - 9mm beads coated unevenly with gold. Approximately 7 inches in circumference.
