women's intuition and awareness mala bracelet, made with high quality lapis lazuli and herkimer diamond quartz. i generally prefer not to be too flashy when I make malas, but I've had these herkimer diamonds for quite awhile and thought I'd try pairing them with the lapis. the result was a very unusual but beautiful mala bracelet.
lapis is known as the “stone of total awareness”. carrying many properties, this natural stone provides activation and energizing of the throat and third eye chakras. it enhances intuition and provides objectivity, clarity, and mental endurance. lapis also assists in tuning into the creative source and awakening to the perfection of self.
herkimer diamond is called the "stone of attunement". while it's not actually a diamond, it is a crystal quartz that often resembles the sparkling clarity of diamonds. these particular pieces are hand cut faceted and were hand picked for their clarity. they are said to assist with balance on the mental, emotional and physical levels and can be used effectively to clear and open any chakra. the herkimer is said to relieve tension and promote peace of mind. mystical lore says that physically it can be used to help heal addictions and remove toxins. the herkimer diamond is also associated with the crown chakra.
as for crystal quartz, it is said to “bring the energy of the stars into the soul”. it is a symbol of purity, patience, perseverance, and infinite space. properties believed to be associated with this stone include wisdom, clarity of thought, general healing, memory, communication, transformation, awakening, cleansing, purity of heart, higher consciousness, positive thoughts, meditation, harmony, and love. it has been used to clear and activate all energy centers and chakras, and is known as the “stone of power” and “sacred fire."
