Mala is a Sanskrit word meaning "garland". It is also the term for a string of beads that has been used by sages and those with spiritual aspirations for thousands of years. Also called yoga beads, a Mala necklace is used to keep count of mantra repetitions during meditation.
This Mala is made of beautiful ebony wood accented with off-white colored riverstone beads. The necklace is 42" long and carved jade varies slightly as they are handmade but are approximately 3" in diameter. It can be worn long or wrapped around the neck two times for a shorter version.
