For this 108 Mala I used 6mm Pink Moonstone and White Faceted Moonstone, brass spacer beads and a 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: 33" (84cm). Amulet length: 1 1/2" (37mm).
Moonstone is a great gemstone to help calm responses and stress and avoid overreaction. It brings hope, enhances feminine energies, sensitivity, intuition and psychic abilities. It is also said to bring strong energies of abundance to one’s life. Moonstone is a stone of protection, especially during childbirth, pregnancy, and travel at sea. It is also associated with love of all kinds. It is the gem of the High Priestess and helps with self-discovery, deep insight, harmony in relationships and soothes emotions. This stone is named for its glowing color sheen that resembles the moonlight; it displays a unique play of floating color known as adolescence. Connected to the Crown Chakra (connection, life force, higher power) and Third Eye Chakra (intuition, knowledge, divine wisdom), and sometimes with the Heart Chakra (love, acceptance, forgiveness).
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. This triangle is pointed upwards and that represents the divine masculine energy (god, heaven, electric, riding, fire, air, protection, king, warrior, father and the known).
