This mala is made of Red Matte Quartz. It’s also known as tangerine quartz or strawberry quartz. It strongly connects to the element of fire, and to the second chakra. Red quartz is the stone of creative problem-solving and can also strengthen one’s sense of willpower. This stone can be used either to revive the creative impulse in a person who feels blocked or to harmonize creativity between people working together on a project. Tangerine quartz can help with building and maintaining a sense of confidence. It can improve the ability to learn and to digest experiences. It can help make sense of apparent chaos. Tangerine quartz can become an ally to those who wish to enact the “law of attraction.”
For the guru bead I chose a Chambered Nautilus shell. It’s spiraled sacred geometry reflects the universe, its pure forms and the dynamic relationship of our selves to nature — the inseparable relationship of the part to the whole.
The beads are 8 mm in diameter. The full length of this mala, including guru bead is 23 inches.
