This smoothly gleaming japa mala (rosary) of 108 prayer beads is indispensable to meditation. Each bead is used to count the repetition of a mantra or chant. The number 108 bears spiritual significance across several religions. The largest bead - at which point the worshiper commences his chant - is the Guru bead with a tassel, a symbol of the teacher-student bond. Handmade in India.
Naturally occurring imperfections may be present, adding to the unique beauty of each piece. The natural properties and composition of mined gemstones define the unique beauty of each piece. The image may show slight differences to the actual stone in color and texture. Please note that the beads are dyed jade to give the intense green.
