For this 108 Mala I used 6mm and 8mm African Turquioise 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: 37" (94cm). Tassel length: 3 1/2" long (90mm).
African Turquoise is a stone that brings you structure, balance, prosperity and a clear and focused mind. It will awaken your soul to its intended purpose and its encouraging energy will open your mind to the possibility of newness. It will renew your spirit, energy and path in life and help you bring about necessary change into your life. African Turquoise will help you stay true to yourself. It is connected to the Third Eye Chakra (intuition, knowledge, divine wisdom).
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.
