For this 108 Mala I used 6mm White Onyx, faceted Amethyst, Opalite and brass spacer beads. The tassel is vegan faux silk. 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: 44" (111cm). Tassel length: 3 1/2" long (90mm).
