This 108 bead mala begins with a beautiful blue denim lapis guru bead and progresses through seven groups of stones with each group associated with and representing a specific chakra. This rainbow of colour is anchored by the warm tones of the tiger skin sandalwood beads that fill out the remaining 52 beads. In detail: red jasper for Muladhara (root chakra), orange carnelian for Svadhisthana (sacral chakra), yellow jade for Manipura (solar plexus chakra), Canadian jade for Anahata (heart chakra), sodalite for Visuddha (throat chakra), amethyst for Ajna (third eye chakra) and clear quartz for Sahasrara (crown chakra). The piece is then finished with a handcrafted tassel of rainbow tones tucked inside an outer surround of blue, all in satin floss.
Each bead is individually hand-knotted using blue multi-filament bonded nylon beading thread, with a 75ib. breaking strength.
Measurements: mala is 39 inches around (99cm), tassel measures 3.0 inches (8cm).

The natural wood beads in this mala will begin to darken with age and can become discoloured if they are exposed to perfumes or sprays. They can be cleaned with warm water and mild soap and may be brushed with natural oils to prevent undue weathering.
