This Mala necklace features 6mm Howlite and Black Onyx beads plus the guru bead which is made with a round matte black obsidian bead and a large lava bead, all hand wired with .925 Sterling Silver.
It's a smaller and shorter knotted mala/necklace perfect for the person who prefers a lighter version of a mala. The stones have a beautiful dark color and shine. As a point of reference, the model in the photo is 5'11".
Howlite is a great stone to use when needing to reduce anxiety and stress. It calms and soothes the emotions and helps in loosening and dispersing muscular tension. It’s also good to slow the overacting mind, helping to achieve restful sleep. Use howlite to absorb anger and negative energy. Howlite gently influences all chakras. This gemstone promotes creativity through trust, openness and discipline. This calming stone is said to teach patience and to help eliminate anger, pain and stress.
Black Onyx helps control stress and eliminate negative thinking. It assists with challenges in life, especially those caused by a drain of energy. It increases stamina and self-control while it eliminates excess or unwanted energies. It helps to calm your fears, leaving you feeling stable and secure.
This Japa Mala can help you with an emotional or spiritual aspect that you want to work on either through meditation or your everyday life. You can also wear it or carry it with you to help you in your spiritual journey and as a reminder to live in the moment.
This Mala Necklace was handmade in my studio in Toronto, Canada with lots of love. We use the highest quality nylon and we place a knot every third bead which creates a unique and strong Mala. All Malas are different and special, variation in color and inclusions in the gemstones are natural.
Your Mala will arrive wrapped in silk paper and in a very special, One-of-kind handmade bag. These bags, which are reversible, are made by a group of ladies from a village outside Calcutta, India out of recycled Saris. It will have a handwritten tag with the names of the stones. We will also include a special card with the description of the metaphysical properties of the stones.
