For this 108 Mala I used 6mm Grey Agate, 6mm matte Grey Agate, 6mm Red Carnelian and brass spacer beads. The tassel is vegan faux silk. 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). Tassel length: 3 1/2" long (90mm).
Agate stands for protection, strength and harmony and it soothes and calms, healing inner anger or tension and creates a sense of security and safety. It is connected to and can remove blockage from any chakra.
Carnelian is an energy booster. It helps the insecure person to find strength within them, so they can come into their own. It is also a stone of protection from anger, jealousy and fear. In addition, it can help with manifestation of one’s desires, and bring good luck. It is connected to the Sacral Chakra (sexuality, relationships, creativity).
The Tassel represents enlightenment. As the strands combine together into one, it represents our connection to the Divine and to each other. It also symbolizes our prana and consciousness.
