I handcrafted this mala with orange quartzite and red wood. Quartzite is quartz that became a solid rock due to pressure and heating, thus the meaning it carries – a stone that helps your withstand hardship in life. It balances and stabilizes positive changes.
Wood beads are warm, earthy and calming. They play so well with the guru bead that I chose for this mala – a tree…..
Very pleasant to touch, this mala reflects the light and warms the heart when times are tough.
The beads are 8mm in diameter.
The length of this mala, including guru bead is 21.5 inches.
