The yin and yang are represented in this mala, made of half carnelian and half blue agate. Carnelian, an orange hued stone, was often referred to as the sunset stone by Egyptians. It is believed to be a source of inspiration and strength for someone looking to find one's voice and strength and is known for creating motivation. The blue agate has swirls of blues and whites that look like waves in the open ocean. Like the carnelian, this stone helps one have their voice heard by promoting confidence and articulation. This stone is especially powerful for caregivers who need strength and support in the important work that they do.
Each mala 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 or right wrist while not in use (the wrist it is worn on is typically determined by the mantra or practice). Please contact us with further questions.
