It is believed to help protect you against things that are not good for you. It helps with finding inner peace, clarity, love and compassion, and is an excellent stone for emotional healing. Blue, in general, is scientifically proven to be calming to the eye.
I made this Mala completely by hand. The beads are 8mm and there are 108 of them. Malas tend to have 108 beads because 108 is considered a sacred number in nature and in several religious beliefs.
I tied a knot after each bead not only to make the necklace last longer but to give it a good hand feel for when you’re moving each bead through your fingers for prayer or meditation. Also, should in the even your Mala break you might lose one bead as opposed to all 108. It also has one silver bead called a guru bead which is symbolic of enlightenment. I chose white string for these not only because it made the beads really pop, but because it’s believed that white is the symbol of purity, new beginnings, and innocence.
If this necklace ever does break please know you can always send it back to me and I will restring it for the cost of shipping. Just shoot me an email to arrange it.
