This Mala Necklace has as its  main beads Golden Obsidian in 8mm with four marker beads- 12mm - in faceted Smokey Quartz. The necklace is finished with a large rondelle of Chinese Jasper (the Guru Bead) and a tassel in the same yellow cord used to hand knot the beads. The necklace is  48" (1.2m) and the tassel is 6"(15 cms)-and if worn full length it hangs below the navel length. It can,  of course,  be worn doubled up to offer a range of different looks.

Whilst they have become something of a fashionable item, Mala necklaces have traditionally been used in both Hinduism and Buddhism as an aid to meditation and to support the recitation of mantras. Within the Buddhist traditions there are a number of different ways to arrange the beads. This particular piece is a Zen Mala having seven beads before the first marker bead and a further fourteen beads after that. This is followed by sixty-six beads and a reverse of the starting beads, followed by a  large Guru bead.  In the world of crystal healing,  both Jasper and Smokey Quartz  are considered to be  'grounding' stones  and Obsidian is believed to be a 'healing' stone. For Game of Thrones fans, it is Obsidian which is known as Dragon Stone.
