Green sandalwood meditation mala with Gobi Agate, Ruby & Turquoise
Traditional, full 108-bead meditation mala with green sandalwood beads. A wooden mala represents life, growth and renewal, with a strengthened connection to earth. In addition, sandalwood symbolises peace of mind, contentment, safety and trust. It is also associated with helping to make one's wishes true.
The three dividers are a combination of rough Gobi Desert Agate with small Rhyolite and Prehnite crystals. The guru bead consists of Gobi Desert Agate, raw Ruby, and Turquoise.
The wooden counter beads are spaced with small matte brown glass seed beads in asymmetrical organic shapes, and knotted with light grey micro-macrame cord at every nine bead interval around a small Prehnite bead. This mala has a fresh, earthy feel, with the wooden beads softly following the contours of your hand when handled, and would make a beautiful meditation companion for someone who prefers a mala that's very light in weight with soft colours and tactile textures.
All around length of mala: 128 cm (50")
Counter bead diameter: 0.8 cm (0.3")
The width of the divider combination: approx. 4.5 cm (1.8")
Length of guru bead combination: just over 5 cm (2")
Please note that Spirit Carrier malas come usually in three sizes, determined by the diameter of the main counter beads - either 8 mm, 10 mm or 12 mm. This mala is the smallest size with 8 mm counter bead diameter (particularly suited for wearing as a necklace due to being lighter in weight and shorter in length than the larger meditation malas).
This unique mala comes in one of Spirit Carrier's handmade soft fabric pouches for safe-keeping. If you would rather have a leather pouch, please let me know at the time of purchase.
You'll receive this mala gift-wrapped at no extra charge.
