For this 108 Mala I used 6mm Black Onyx, 8mm Matte Labradorite, brass spacer beads and large brass Recovery 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: 37" (94cm). Amulet: 3 3/8" (36mm).
Black Onyx absorbs and transforms negative energy and helps to prevent the drain of personal energy. It can give you emotional and physical strength and stamina, especially when you need it the most, during times of stress, confusion or grief. This is also a stone that helps you with wise decision-making and make you the master of your own future. Black Onyx is connected to the Root Chakra (connection to earth, survival instincts, self-preservation).
Labradorite is a power stone that will help you to see through illusions and determine the actual form of your dreams and goals. It is excellent for strengthening intuitions. It will stimulate your imagination and help you to see more clearly during meditation. It is connected to the Third Eye Chakra (intuition, knowledge, divine wisdom) and the Crown Chakra (connection, life force, higher power).
The Recovery Symbol is an addiction recovery symbol and the three point of the triangle symbolizes Hope, Strength and Willpower. I am in love with the look of this symbol, and I also firmly believe that we can all wear this since we are all recovering from something.
