For this 108 Mala I used 6mm White Onyx, 6mm and 8mm Moonstone, brass spacer beads and a copper Crescent Moon 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: 36" (91cm). Amulet width: 1" (27mm).
Onyx can help make its owners mind positive and purify negative energy. It can clear anxiety and sadness and help you deal with inner and outer stress. It is connected to the Crown Chakra (connection, life force, higher power).
Moonstone help calm responses, stress and avoid overreaction. It brings hope, enhances feminine energies, sensitivity, intuition and psychic abilities. It is connected to the Crown Chakra (connection, life force, higher power) and the Third Eye Chakra (intuition, knowledge, divine wisdom), and sometimes the Heart Chakra (love, acceptance, forgiveness).
Crescent Moon. The word crescent means to bring forth, to create, grow and thrive. It stands for Transformation, Fertility, Illumination, Change, Shadows, Balance, Emotions, Intuition, Inner Knowledge, Femininity.
The Waning Crescent (right before a New Moon) is a time to anchor into your new intention. This is a great time to get rid of negative energy in your life, of things you don’t need or things, or letting go of people or habits which are harming you. The Waxing Crescent (right after a New Moon) is the final phase of the entire moon cycle and it’s a great opportunity to look back and reflect. It is also a great time to start something new and invite new things into your life. It symbolizes growth and creativity.
