Turquoise and Bone 108 Beads Meditation MalaProduct Review (submitted on March 7, 2013):
This is a very pretty mala. It isn't exactly what I was looking for, but close. The first thing I did was to untie it and customize into a different piece. The silver findings do look a bit cheap, so I left them out altogether. The three decorative beads plus findings for counters were very nice looking, but distracting to pass over. Plus, the bone beads and coral beads are identical in size, which I felt could become confusing. I left in two turquoise pieces for the counters, at the 36 marks instead of at 27 to divide it into three parts. Then, I added one of the coral pieces in between the guru bead and the other cone shaped bead, and knotted it three times at the end. What I ended up with was more humble looking than what I began with, but functions much better for my needs. All of the beads are in excellent condition, equally sized and the cord is very sturdy and complimentary in color. Overall, this is definitely a mala worth purchasing and a very fair price.
