unisex stability, change, and balance convertible chain mala™ necklace or wrap bracelet, made from natural white wood handmade chain, grade a matte finish African turquoise, smoky quartz, pyrite, hematite, moonstone, and your choice of charm. I am so excited about these new chain malas! I've worked on this design for over a month and now they are finally here with more to come!!! all chains in these malas are handmade and fair trade, and manufactured in India without supporting child labor or underpaid workmanship. I've tested these and they are very easy to use for meditation, and each piece has a detachable section with clasps on both sides (to accommodate both right and left handed wrists) and can be worn as a necklace or as a wrap bracelet. just clasp between the wood to accommodate your size, tuck any remaining chain under the mala and you'll have a wrap bracelet that won't come undone during asana practice. this particular mala's detachable section can also be worn as a bracelet separately and fits a 7" - 7.5" wrist. extremely versatile mala. this mala is also perfect for the heart and crown chakras. enjoy and I hope you love it as much as I do!!!
