For this long 108 Mala I use 8mm Feldspar, 8mm Carnelian gemstone, brass spacer beads and a red faux silk tassel. 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: 42" (106.5cm). Tassel Length: 3 1/2" (90mm).
Feldspar helps you in honoring yourself as a woman, honoring your sexuality and ability to create new life. Feldspar increases your self-respect, self-esteem and self-awareness. Feldspar is often associated with life’s changes and are beneficial if you have difficulty coping. It can help you see things in a more positive light. It is connected to the Solar Plexus Chakra (personal power, confidence, respect for self and others) and the Heart Chakra (love, acceptance, forgiveness).
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).
The Tassel represents enlightenment. As the strands combine together in to one, it represents our connection to the Divine and to each other. It also symbolizes our prana and consciousness.
