This 108 bead mala is made of Rosewood & Green Aventurine with two 3" feather pendants which serve as a modern interpretation of the traditional "guru bead".
An ankh cross charm, an Egyptian symbol for Eternal Life and the Divine Masculine/Feminine Union, is located on the back of the piece which lands directly under the pineal gland. Can be customized by special request.
The gemstones used for each piece are specifically chosen due to their unique healing properties:
Rosewood is made with a natural wood grain and smooth finish. Especially effective in healing the spirit and heart chakra, rosewood's power is often in the scent, which is released and revived with usage. The scent of rosewood is traditionally used for nervous tension, frigidity, headaches, jet lag and skin inflammation. It also assists the immune system.
Green Aventurine is a stone of prosperity, luck and chance. It is said to increase perception and creative insight and reinforces leadership qualities. As a comforter and heart healer, it also promotes compassion and empathy.

How to Use a Mala:
A "mala" is a set of mantra counting beads. A mantra is a word or statement repeated personally or aloud with sincerity, devotion, feeling and deep attention. The overall intention is to naturally allow the attention to lead to deep concentration, which in turn allows for meditation and eventually "samadhi", to acquire wholeness, or truth. This mala contains 108 beads, as this number is considered sacred by many eastern religions and spiritual groups. To use the mala, begin at the guru bead, the larger bead at its base. Drape the first mala bead, the one next to the guru on your right, in between your thumb and middle finger. Slide your thumb over the first mala bead down and move to the next. Repeat this movement for a count of 108 beads. You may focus on your breathing, moving past each bead as you take an “in breath” or an “out breath”.
