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 mala is beautifully strung with a turquoise bead for added benefits. Turquoise is known for its ability to protect from outside influences and its ability to dissipate negative energy. Turquoise resonates with the throat chakra. These lava and turquoise beads measure approximately 8mm, but may vary slightly in size due to their handmade nature.
Prayer mala or beads are often used in Tibet, Nepal, and India by Buddhists for meditation, counting mantras, and prostration. Malas are worn on the left wrist while not in use. Please email me for more detail and I will be more than happy to assist you.
