A limited edition 108 mala hand strung in Rishikesh, India with bold snowflake obsidian beads and lava rock.
Snowflake obsidian is not only stunning but also very unique, as each stone reveals its own translucent banding. They appear almost black but feature a metallic iridescence depending on how you look at them.
Lava rock is known for its grounding properties and is wonderful for calming the emotions.
Obsidian is a very protective stone and is excellent for removing negativity; it is related primarily to the Root Chakra. It is very useful to help you to let go of disharmony and shields against negative emotions. Obsidian is a powerful stone for stimulating spiritual growth.
Because it comes from raw energy, lava rock is considered to be a stone of rebirth and shedding unneeded layers of emotional attachment. It is created from the center of the Earth and therefore is fantastic for stabilizing and grounding the Root Chakra.
Mala measures 34 inches around. Beads are about 8mm.
Because our malas were made by our artisan partners in Rishikesh, India, a portion of profits rightfully belongs to the Himalayan community. BHANTI is partnering with the Himalayan Children's Fund to provide funds for education and medical clinics in India, Nepal, and Tibet.
