Amethyst Crystal Mala Bead Necklace 28"
This gorgeous amethyst crystal bead necklace can also be worn as a multi-wrap bracelet.
Amethyst crystal is considering a healing, calming and peaceful crystal and can help to promote happiness. It's often used in times of grief and personal loss to bring emotional stability and inner strength.
In doing my research, I learned that this necklace is also called a mala prayer bead necklace. The number of beads vary from one religion to the next. Since there are 108 prayer beads, they are considered Mala buddhist prayer beads. The beads allow the person to count the number of prayers that have been said with less effort on the counting, thereby staying present and more effort given to the actual prayers themselves. This bracelet does not have knots in between each bead as some prayer beads do.
Personally, I love jewelry that dangles and I love simplicity and most of all I love a good background story. I have tried through the years to learn how to meditate. Honestly I have tried and someone recommended using these beads to help clear my mind. I'm working on it... but aren't we all works in progress?
The necklace measures 72cm or roughly 28".
