For this 108 Mala I used 6mm Grey Agate, 6mm matte Grey Agate, 6mm Moonstone 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: 34" (86.5cm). Tassel length: 3 1/2" long (90mm).
Agate stands for protection, strength and harmony and it soothes and calms, healing inner anger or tension and creates a sense of security and safety. It is connected to and can remove blockage from any chakra.
Moonstone help calm responses, stress and avoid overreaction. It brings hope, enhances feminine energies, sensitivity, intuition and psychic abilities. It is connected to the Crown Chakra (connection, life force, higher power) and the Third Eye Chakra (intuition, knowledge, divine wisdom), and sometimes the Heart Chakra (love, acceptance, forgiveness).
The Tassel represents enlightenment. As the strands combine together into one, it represents our connection to the Divine and to each other. It also symbolizes our prana and consciousness.
