Through centuries and continents, malas have been a trusted companion for countless people in their meditative and healing practices. We continue this tradition by making malas in a time-honored way. Each of our malas has 108 gemstone beads. Number 1 signifying our connection to the Universal Oneness, 0 - the absence of ego, and number 8 - the sign of infinity. Our malas feature a beautiful silver bead and traditional tassel attached to it.This particular mala is made with striped black agate - a grounding and protective stone with a beautiful white vein appearing in it. Black Agate gives inner strength to move on and is also very helpful in keeping the peace in stressful households.
