This meditation mala (rosary) consists of 108 clear crystal quartz beads and is indispensible to personal meditation techniques. The beads are strung by hand and separated at intervals of 27 by counters carved from Rudraksha seeds. A larger Rudraksha seed sits just below the bright red tassel, indicating its status as guru bead, the point on the mala from which all meditation begins.
Handmade in India: some variation is bead size and texture is characteristic of the crystal quartz material. Apparent cracks in the beads are organic and natural, and add to the individuality of each item.
I received this on Monday and mailed it back on Tuesday. The picture looked great but the reality fell pretty far short. The beads are smaller than I expected, but that's on me, I think, as the size is indeed mentioned in the copy. However, the mala had no weight and no drape to it. It felt tight and stiff rather than hanging loosely as a quality item would. The tassel is made of a very thin, cheap-feeling fiber that, again, has no substance or weight to it (about like thread strands) and came w/a kink in it about halfway down. I was really looking forward to getting a nice mala for a reasonable price, but unfortunately, I guess I'm still waiting... Unknown on 7th Apr 2015
