Turquoise is perhaps the oldest stone in man’s history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. It is a stone of protection, strong yet soothing to the touch, healing to the eye. African Turquoise is called a ‘Stone of Evolution’ because it brings encouragement to growth, development and positive change within life itself. Coral quiets the emotions and brings peace to within the self while facilitating intuition, imagination and visualization. In India, Sandalwood is given divine status and is thus very commonly used in mala beads. The fragrance of Sandalwood is considered cooling, calming and soothing. Sandalwood also promotes humility and focuses the mind to aid in meditation.
This Mala is stung on twisted nylon, using 6mm and 8mm beads and is approximately 35″ long with a 4″ drop.
