Fun and bold turquoise skull wrist mala.
Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man’s history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. It is a stone of protection, strong and opaque, yet soothing to the touch, healing to the eye, as if carved from an azure heaven and slipped to earth. Its unique shade of blue, often blue-green, lends it name, Turquoise, to all things of this tranquil hue. The delicate veining or mottled webbing in cream or brown is inherent to the stone and serves to enhance its character. The skull in Buddhism is a symbol of impermanence and is a powerful reminder to be here now!
Strung on black adjustable cord, this wrist mala measures approximately 6 inches when closed and 9 inches when fully open. Each skull bead measures approximately 6 by 8mm. Handmade in Nepal.
