I love the smokey greys and flashes of blues of this mala.
Made from a combination of Labradorite & Black Labradorite, and interspersed with Kyanite.
It is finished with a silver tassel, Moroccan silver disc bead, and large blue Agate. 

Traditionally Mala’s are made with 108 beads with a larger stone (the Guru or Meru stone) that the 108 turn around like planets around the Sun.

The number 108 has long been held as a sacred number in Hinduism. 
It connects the Earth , the moon, and the Sun.
The average distance between the Sun & the moon to the earth is 108 times their respective diameters.
The circumference of the Sun is said to be 108 times the circumference of the Earth. 

In Vedic culture 108 is viewed as a number of the wholeness of existence.

In yogic traditions, there are 108 sacred sites throughout India, and 108 sacred places of the body.

Place the Mala between your middle & ring finger. Starting at the Guru/Meru stone, use your thumb to count each smaller stone as you recite your mantra.

Properties of Labradorite
 - a stone of magic, said to enhance your psychic abilities, and intuition.

It is a powerful healing crystal, that increases coincidence and synchronicity. 

It is also known as a stone of transformation, a useful companion through change, imparting strength and perseverance

Properties of Kyanite - a stone that aligns all the chakras and so creates balance within you.

It cannot hold onto negative energy, so is one of two Earth stones (the other being Citrine) that never needs to cleansed.

It facilitates dream recall and promotes healing dreams.

It encourages you to speak your truth cutting through fears and blocks...aiding self-expression.

*Nb: the tassel is currently still in its protective case...ready for you to remove once you get it home.
