CHANGE AGENT MALA
featuring LAVA STONE + AFRICAN TURQUOISE
Lava Stone is believed to calm the emotions and known for its grounding qualities. Lava is known as a stone of strength and courage (kinda like having a cheerleader by your side 24/7). It's believed to assist you to be more in tune with Mother Earth, also containing the powerful energy of the volcano that created them.
We have paired this beautiful stone with African Turquoise. Though it might sound like a form of turquoise, African Turquoise is its own unique stone. A teal, speckled form of jasper, African Turquoise is often dyed and used to fool people in the form of mock turquoise. Don’t allow its appearance to confuse you, though — it offers quite different qualities and energies. Considered the stone of evolution, African Turquoise brings about great change and transformation within life. Its encouraging energy opens minds to the possibility of newness. This stone helps us to see the need for development and metamorphosis, and provides the balance and confidence necessary to further the process of self-development. It will renew your spirit, energy, and path in life.
We love the significance of Kadam Sandalwood beads used in this design. Hindu mythology suggests the child of Shiva (the Auspicious One) and Parvati (the Goddess of Love) was born beneath a Kadamba tree. Wooden beads from this tree symbolize wisdom, love, new beginnings, and the circle of life. A great cost-sensitive alternative to Mysore Sandalwood, with little to no fragrance.
This handmade mala necklace features 108 beads, and measures approximately 38" around.
