For this 108 Mala I used 6mm Larvikite Labradorite, one 8mm Gold Sheen Obsidian 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: 36" (91.5cm). Tassel length: 3 1/2" long (90mm).
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).
Obsidian is a volcanic stone of purity, that brings balance to the body, mind and spirit. It is a very grounding and protective stone. It is used as a great cleanser of negative energies, helping to remove not only negativity experienced in the environment, but also that of one’s own emotions, such as anger, jealousy, greed and resentment. It is connected to the Root Chakra (connection to earth, survival instincts, self-preservation).
The Tasselrepresents 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.
