Semi Precious Turquoise/Howlite Mala
Turquoise is known to enhance communication and expression. It also aligns all of the chakras and is often used for healing purposes. The beautiful tassel on this mala is made of Arizona turquoise, which is extremely rare and hard to find! The beads are howlite. Howlite is known to relieve stress, strengthen bones and bring forth memories of our past lives.
Malas are one of the latest fashion trends, but their origin and history goes back to the birthplace of yoga. The term mala derives from the Sanskrit word “Japamala,” which is a string of beads used for prayer and meditation by Hindus and Buddhists. The mala is very similar to the concept of a Catholic Rosary. The string of 108 beads is traditionally used to keep count while chanting or repeating a mantra while meditating.
Historically the number 108 is sacred in the Hindu religion and has spiritual significance.
Our malas pair beautifully with the entire Pax Philomena line. We love them for their lightweight feel and their ability to be layered. They bring the perfect splash of colour to your look and will sure make you smile! Our Stone Malas are not only beautiful, but these stones have healing properties as well.
