One of our newest malas has 108 beads that have been individually knotted and hand strung with a knot tied in between each bead. A matching 4 inch tassel finishes the mala. It includes 108 8mm striped agate beads and features a larger 10mm guru bead from which the tassel hangs. Hand knotted malas are some of our most requested and popular items, as they are great for meditation practice.
Agate is known to be a stone of strength, and can help to balance yin/yang energies, courage, protection, healing, and calming. Metaphysically, Agate has a lower intensity and vibrates to a slower frequency than other stones, but is highly regarded as a stabilizing and strengthening influence.
Mala measures approximately 38 inches around. Beads are 8mm, guru bead is 10mm. Tassel measures about 4 inches long. Handmade in Nepal.
