It has very natural medium walnut colour and easy to use during meditation and prayers. Slightly heavy for me and it would be even better if beads are smaller. No regrets with the purchase and it is going to last me a long time I hope.

A Beautiful Way to Pray
These mala certainly are delightful. The beads have a wonderful smooth yet textured feel that's very natural and easily reminiscent of Mother Nature's exquisite ability to erode & polish that which was once rough & rustic. They have a nice heft to them and a lovely, comforting smell, as several others have mentioned. The beads on the mala I received are not as uniform as the ones in the picture - the size and shape of mine vary considerably and, in particular, the 2 flattened sides on most beads are very angled (almost making a 'V' shape) as opposed to being near-parallel. This is not a criticism, however, as I actually appreciate the aesthetic and I think the unevenness of the beads, and the way they sit together in a jagged-y fashion, gives the mala a wholesomely organic and unique appeal.It may be worthwhile to note that this mala is quite large. The bodhi seeds are nice & chunky, and so, the necklace is long. In the photo with the blond girl, the mala she wears reaches down to about the bottom of her breast line, whereas, it reaches several inches lower on me to just above my navel (I am also female and would estimate to being a similar body size).
The best that I bought till now. Flat beans make it very easy to handle.I will buy one with round beans.Recommend to buy.
