Aventurine and Black Onyx
21 soothing green Aventurine 8mm beads and 6 deep black 8mm Onyx beads, 3 either side of a 10mm Onyx Guru and extension.
The mala is strung on black silk thread for a smooth flow through the hands and is finished off with a black handmade cotton tassle.
This mala is made to be adjustable in the amount of space prefered between the beads as they are moved by the thumb after each mantra is recited. The tassle can be pulled away from the Guru bead to provide more cord length into the mala for a greater space between the counting bead or subsequently the tassle can be slid closer to the Guru bead by pulling on the knotted silk thread in the tassle to take in the slack.
There is a matching full mala here.
