Mala or "garland" beads are used traditionally in meditation practices, each strand carrying 108 beads and one marker or "guru" bead. Today they are also worn as a bracelet, necklace or anklet.
These beautiful matte beads are formed from amazonite stone. Amazonite is a calming stone that helps with anxiety and depression. It works with the heart and throat chakra but also soothes all other chakras.
