This 108 bead mala necklace is made of 100% natural 8mm Amethyst beads & high quality white wood beads from the Phillipines. Accented with antique gold metal spacers. Length: 37".
A 1.5" gold-capped raw amethyst pendant serves as a modern interpretation of the traditional "guru bead".
An OM charm is located on the back of the piece which lands directly under the pineal gland. OM is a sacred syllable representing the profound concept of Infinite and Absolute — omnipotent, omnipresent, and the source of all manifest existence.
The gemstones used for each piece are specifically chosen due to their unique healing properties:
Amethyst activates spiritual awareness & wisdom, opens intuition and enhances psychic abilities. Said to guard against psychic attack, Amethyst calms and stimulates the mind, helping with focus and motivation. The stone also assists with dream recall, mood swings, anger, rage and fear. Amethyst has also been used for thousands of years to provide protection during travel.

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”.
