women's citrine and smoky quartz buddha mala necklace, made with fair trade grade AA+ citrine, Australian bloodstone, smoky quartz, Czech crystal for just a touch of sparkle, and brass distressed buddha pendant made in Thailand with a beaded tassel. our knotted and braided Malas™ are a new and completely original design that uses 6mm and 8mm beads with comfortable spacing between each bead for easy meditation. please bear in mind that it's very difficult to capture the unique and antique look of each one of these pieces through photographs. they are absolutely stunning in person. each piece is made with fair trade gemstones and pendants from all over the world, and Czech crystal which is also fair trade. this piece comes with a gemstone card or mantra card (as long as I have it in stock) and a beautiful tibetan brocade mala bag.
the word buddha is a sanskrit word which means "the awakened one", one who is awakened to reality, who understands the true nature of the mind, the world, and all sentient beings. the buddha embarked on an endless, compassionate journey to teach living beings how to see reality, how to gain true wisdom, how to free themselves, and how to achieve true peace and joy. his teaching is known as the dharma.
