For this 108 Mala I used 6mm Rose Quartz, Grey Agate, Pyrite, Amethyst, brass spacer beads and a Vintage Buddha Amulet from Thailand. 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 3/8" (34mm).
Rose Quartz is known as the love stone. It is a stone for every type of love: self-love, family, platonic, romantic, and unconditional love. Rose quartz has high energy, and this strong energy can enhance love in virtually any situation, and it also lowers stress and soothes those around it. It is often used to attract love, for love spells and charms. It is connected to the Heart Chakra (love, acceptance, forgiveness).
Agate has properties that will help you balancing yin/yang energy, courage, protection, healing, and calming. It soothes and calms, healing inner anger or tension and creates a sense of security and safety. Agate is a stone of strength, it gives courage, emotional strength and self-confidence, and dispels fears. It is connected to and can remove blockage from any chakra (depending on color).
Pyrite is a powerful protection stone and is very grounding, and it is a traditional symbol for money and good luck. Use this stone to overcome lethargy and fatigue and strengthening of the mind. Pyrite makes a wonderful energy shield and blocking out negativity, overcoming feelings of inadequacy and energizes the area where you place it. It is connected to the Sacral Chakra (sexuality, relationships, creativity) and the Solar Plexus Chakra (personal power, confidence, respect for self and others).
Amethyst is a meditative and calming stone which works in the emotional, spiritual, and physical planes to provide calm, balance, patience, and peace. It is connected to the Third Eye Chakra (intuition, knowledge, divine wisdom) and the Crown Chakra (connection, life force, higher power).
The Buddha is considered an ornament for purification, enhancing spirituality, good health and enables the wearer to rise above hallucinations brought about by materialism. The Buddha symbol represents your Dharma, finding your path.
