Agate, Lilac, African Turquoise & Pyrite Buddha Amulet Mala
I am EarthBound
For this 108 Mala I used 6mm Grey Agate, Lilac, African Turquoise, Pyrite, one 8mm Smokey Quartz, brass spacer beads and a Vintage Buddha Amulet from Thailand. 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). Amulet length: 1 3/8" (34mm).
Agate has properties that will help you balancing yin/yang energy, courage, protection, healing, and calming. It soothes and calms, healing inner anger or tension and creates a sense of security and safety. Agate is a stone of strength, it gives courage, emotional strength and self-confidence, and dispels fears. It is connected to and can remove blockage from any chakra (depending on color).
Lilac is a soothing calming stone that will help you if you are feeling anxious, stressed or depressed. It brings emotional healing and helps you get deeper into meditation. It has a truly unique resonance that aids a Divine connection with the deep innermost part of yourself known as the Divine Presence. It’s connected to the Third Eye Chakra (intuition, knowledge, divine wisdom), the Crown Chakra (connection, life force, higher power) and the Heart Chakra (love, acceptance, forgiveness).
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).
Pyrite is a powerful protection stone and is very grounding, and it is a traditional symbol for money and good luck. Use this stone to overcome lethargy and fatigue and strengthening of the mind. Pyrite makes a wonderful energy shield and blocking out negativity, overcoming feelings of inadequacy and energizes the area where you place it. It is connected to the Sacral Chakra (sexuality, relationships, creativity) and the Solar Plexus Chakra (personal power, confidence, respect for self and others).
The Buddha is considered an ornament for purification, enhancing spirituality, good health and enables the wearer to rise above hallucinations brought about by materialism. The Buddha symbol represents your Dharma, finding your path.
