This “Traditional Mala” consists of 108 beads, each hand-knotted. It begins with a handmade tassel, followed by a Clear Quartz guru bead. High-quality Uruguayan Amethyst is attributed to the deep purple color and clarity of the 8mm beads. The necklace includes four 10mm Clear Quartz “marker beads” consistent with a traditional mala. Amethyst calms the mind and assists in meditation. These beads were bathed in the energy of the full moon before being strung with loving intention. Recently described in person as “exquisite” the beauty of this mala cannot be captured in pictures!
