This wrist mala is strung with rudraksha beads, two turquoise beads, and one carnelian bead. Rudraksha is known for its ability to aid in controlling stress, meditation, and promoting positive changes. Turquoise is known for its ability to protect from outside influences and its ability to dissipate negative energy. Turquoise resonates with the throat chakra. 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 root chakra. All of the beads are strung by Hands of Tibet with love and measure approximately 7-8mm, but may vary slightly in size due to their handmade nature.
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.

1. Hold the mala with the long knot at the top. Use thumb and forefinger from each hand to hold beads on either side of the knot (left hand holds the bead on the eft, right hand holds the bead on the right).
2. Pull hands apart and away from the long knot. Our malas are usually knotted a little tight so you can pull pretty hard!
3. To tighten, pull small beads at the end of the strings.
