Mala beads are beautiful tools for meditation. Breathe deeply and move through the beads, one-by-one, as you repeat a personal mantra or intention with each count. This speckled blue mala is made from 108 individually knotted lapis gemstone beads (7-8 mm) and measures about 30-34 inches long.
Handmade in India: some natural variation in bead size and shape, including rough edges and superficial markings, is natural and reflects the organic beauty of each individual item. Individually knotted, should not be wrapped too tightly around wrist, as this may cause the mala to break. Not waterproof. Color will vary.
Gemstone: Lapis lazuli is said to enhance your senses of awareness, insight and intellect. Holding a lapis stone is a natural way to reduce stress, simply by meditating upon its calming blue color.
This is my first mala and I wasn't sure what I wanted. I've looked at a bunch of websites and wanted something that was as high quality as I could get for the price. I really loved this one though, the moment I saw it. Lapis is supposed to be very calming as well as physically and mentally healing. I have a chronic illness and thought that would be a helpful quality for a mala I own to possess. The stones are quite smooth, although vary very slightly in size. They have a gorgeous metallic shimmer to them. If I had one complaint it would only be that the tassel leaves something to be desired - hardly a huge complaint. I would recommend this to friends.
