For this 108 Mala I used 6mm red and orange Carnelian, Jade, Rudraksha, spacer beads and a brass Triangle amulet. The mala has been hand knotted on an extra strong, nylon cord with one knot between each gemstone bead. It not only looks great, it also makes it easy to use it as a tool in your meditation practice.
Mala length: 37" (94cm). Amulet length: 2 1/2" (63mm).
Carnelian is an energy booster. It helps the insecure person to find strength within them, so they can come into their own. It is also a stone of protection from anger, jealousy and fear. In addition, it can help with manifestation of one’s desires, and bring good luck. It is connected to the Sacral Chakra (sexuality, relationships, creativity).
Jade is a stone used to attract love, fidelity and healing. It is connected to the Heart Chakra (love, acceptance, forgiveness) and the Third Eye Chakra (intuition, knowledge, divine wisdom).
Rudraksha is considered a manifestation of the cosmic force, and a source to reach the Higher Self. It also helps to open all the chakras and heal the body and the mind.
The Triangle symbolizes hope, strength and willpower. The triangle also stands for mind, body & spirit and past, present & future. It also symbolize the stages of the moon, the holy trinity and a symbol of a doorway to a higher wisdom.
