men's african turquoise and ebony mala necklace or wrap bracelet, made with high quality ebony, african turquoise, tibetan carved lotus mantra conch shells, and double-sided bronze mahatma gandhi coin. african turquoise is a stone of protection and grounding, gentleness and relaxation, tranquility and ease, and gentle change. it balances yin and yang energies, sustains and supports through times of stress, brings peace, and protects while absorbing negative energy. it attracts friendship, love, luck, prosperity, happiness, success, and courage, and has been said to aid in the release of shame and guilt. it promotes stability, comfort, and calm.
the lotus mantra (om mani padme hum), translated as the "jewel in the eye of the lotus," is known as the mantra of compassion. it is considered the highest mantra and protects from all harm, sufferings, and ill health. it purifies and frees us from all negative emotions of the mind and speech.
ebony is considered to be one of the most powerful woods and is said to bring strength and protection. it amplifies any stone it is paired with, balances both the feminine and masculine energies, brings good luck, and is considered to be especially useful in the seeking of spiritual knowledge. our ebony is sourced through responsible farming, without harm or deforestation.
