If you could only choose one crystal to have a Mala necklace made out of, clear quartz would be a perfect choice. Clear Quartz is known as a Master Healer, meaning it can be used for body issues as well as mental and emotional issues. It’s effective if you wish to set your intentions and “program” your crystals and it works beautifully with the crown chakra that helps expand awareness but it can really be used for all of your chakras.
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.
