For this 108 Mala I used Amethyst, Grey Agate, Rudraksha, White Jade, spacer beads and a brass Triangle Amulet. 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: 36" (91cm). Amulet length: 1 3/4" (44mm).
Amethyst is a meditative and calming stone which works in the emotional, spiritual, and physical planes to provide calm, balance, patience, and peace. It is connected to the Third Eye Chakra (intuition, knowledge, divine wisdom) and the Crown Chakra (connection, life force, higher power).
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).
Jade is a stone used to attract love, fidelity and healing. It is connected to the Heart Chakra (love, acceptance, forgiveness) and the Third Eye Chakra (intuition, knowledge, divine wisdom).
Rudraksha is considered a manifestation of the cosmic force, and a source to reach the Higher Self. It also helps to open all the chakras and heal the body and the mind.
The Triangle symbolizes hope, strength and willpower. The triangle also stands for mind, body & spirit and past, present & future. It also symbolize the stages of the moon, the holy trinity and a symbol of a doorway to a higher wisdom.
