Agate, Onyx, Opalite, Pyrite & Smokey Quartz Amulet Mala
I am EarthBound
For this 108 Mala I used 6mm Grey Agate, White Onyx, Opalite, 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: 33" (84cm). Amulet length: 1 1/8" (30mm).
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.

White Onyx can help make its owners mind positive and purify negative energy. It can clear anxiety and sadness and help you deal with inner and outer stress. It is connected to the Crown Chakra (connection, life force, higher power)
Opalite is a stone of inspiration and it can enhance imagination and creativity. It is connected to the Heart Chakra (love, acceptance, forgiveness) and the Crown Chakra (connection, life force, higher power).
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).
Smokey Quartz is nature’s stone of endurance that will give you an extra boost when you need it. Smokey Quartz is also a protection stone that cleanses and clears negative energy. It is grounding, enhances organizational skills and is good to have around in the workplace or home office. It is said this crystal also helps relieve depression and negative energies. It is connected to the Root Chakra (connection to earth, survival instincts, self-preservation) and 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.
