For this 108 Mala I used 6mm Labradorite Jade, 6mm Opalite, Mini Brass Beads and a gorgeous Labradorite as the Guru Bead. 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: 32" (31cm). Guru Bead:1 1/8" (3cm).
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).
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 Guru Bead is bead number 109 in the mala, and it signals the end of one round in your japa cycle (meditation). The Guru Bead is very important because it will hold all your prayers, and when you wear the mala you’ll have your prayers, intentions, hopes and dreams close yo your heart. It also symbolized the connection between teacher and student.
