The modern design of these Mala beads are adorned intermittently with metal alloy beads of varying shapes, White Turquoise beads, as well as a hematite guru bead and a two strand tassel. White Turquoise is known for its protective and purifying qualities. It is often associated with the crown chakra and has the ability to align all 7 chakras. It promotes emotional peace and wellbeing.
Mala beads were originally created to be used as a meditation tool; you repeat the mantra until all 108 mala beads have been touched. Repeating this process channels aspirations, goals and intensions. Vedic traditions in Hinduism interpreted the number 108 as being the wholeness of the universe. One represents the solar, zero represents the lunar, and eight represents the nature of all things. Thus, the entire universe.
