One of our newest malas has 108 beads and includes a 3 1/2 inch tassel at the bottom. It incorporates shiny white jasper beads as well as matte black onyx, finishing with a white jasper guru bead from which the tassel hangs. The black and white contrasting beads give this mala a clean, fresh, sophisticated look.
White includes all of the colors spectrum and represents the source of conscious creation. It will purify the body as well as bring peace and comfort at the highest levels. Onyx jewelry is worn to defend against negativity. Black stones have protective energies in the sense that black is the absence of light, and therefore, can be used to create invisibility.
