These lava beads were formed by molten lava from the volcanic island of Bali. Lava is known for its grounding and calming properties as well as its ability to aid in enhancing one’s connection to the earth and promoting courage and strength. Lava beads are popularly used as essential oil diffusers because of the stone’s porous nature. Lava resonates with the base/root chakra. This lava wrist mala includes one carnelian bead for added benefits. Carnelian is the stone of action; it aids in manifestation, courage, clarifying one’s goals, and resonates with the solar plexus chakra, sacral chakra and the base/root chakra. These lava beads measure approximately 8mm, but may vary slightly in size due to their handmade nature.
Each bead measures approximately 8mm and is strung by Hands of Tibet with love. Prayer beads are usually used for meditation, counting mantras, and prostration. Malas are worn on the left wrist while not in use. Please contact me with any further questions.
