A new arrival from our Tibetan Partners. This 21 bead natural high quality wrist mala is made from Bamboo Coral 8mm beads with 2 Turquoise gemstone bead spacers strung on a durable strong stretchy cord.
Red Bamboo Coral is still used today as a protective talisman against evil spirits. It is said to bring luck to the home, and used as a protector for those who work on or near the water. Coral is also beneficial for bone growth and helps those who suffer from arthritis and other bone ailments. It can ease digestive problems, eye problems and blood-circulation disorders. Because of its softness, red bamboo coral should be kept in a soft cloth. It can be damaged by hot water, bright sunlight, and cosmetics and other chemicals. Some red corals, depending on the type of dye used, may "bleed." If this occurs, the beads can be washed in warm, soapy water and blotted dry with paper towels until the excess dye no longer appears on the towel.
Turquoise is a valued power stone. It will strengthen and align all of the Chakras; and it can be used to cleanse your energy centers. As a meditation tool, the gem can assist in clearing your mind, opening you to the Universal All. Use Turquoise to attune to the spiritual plane or provide protection during vision quests or astral travel.
The peaceful nation of Tibet, blessed by vibrant culture and traditions, exists despite constant threat of elimination, as a living civilization, breathing deeply of the unique attributes which make Tibet separate from all others.
