For this long "showstopper" 108 Mala I used 8mm Rainbow Amazonite, Opalite and 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: 41" (104cm). Amulet: 1 1/2" (38mm).
Amazonite is the stone of truth, honor, integrity and trust. It is connected to the Heart Chakra (love, acceptance, forgiveness), the Throat Chakra (truth, communication, choice) and the Third Eye Chakra (intuition, knowledge, divine wisdom).
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).
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.
