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 Rose Quartz from Madagascar is attributed for the beautiful color and clarity of the 8mm beads. The necklace includes four 10mm Clear Quartz “marker beads” consistent with a traditional mala. Rose Quartz is the crystal of love and compassion. These beads were bathed in the energy of the full moon before being strung with loving intention.
