Our moss agate and pyrite mala offers a rare and perfectly balanced combination of gemstones which look and feel like they have always belonged together. The moss agate beads we use possess an extraordinary range of color from soft green to very dark, moss green - all the varieties of green in Ireland! If you look at these gemstones under a magnifying glass, each one looks as though it has been painstakingly crafted by The Creator - and of course it has.
In this Moss Agate mala we use the traditional count of 108 beads, divided into groups of twelve by contrasting, heart shaped Pyrite gemstones, chosen for their beauty and specific vibratory qualities (see below). You will notice that we don't use a silk tassel at the end, which tends to get worn and raggedy, but prefer to use a "Guru" gemstone bead as is the custom in India. In this case the "Guru" stone is a beautiful 14 mil round Pyrite stone.
All our malas are designed to look good and to make counting mantras or Kriyas easy. You will never go back to counting on your fingers!
We make all our malas ourselves to ensure quality and that they start out with a peaceful vibration, not that of a restless factory. A subtle yet conducive energy can be felt when wearing or meditating with these malas. Each one is not only a work of art, it is made to wear and use daily. Wear it comfortably to meditation, the yoga studio, to the opera, - anywhere you want to look and feel good
This beautiful mala can also be worn as a stunning double loop necklace as shown by using a pearl clasp. To view our selection of clasps -click here
