This mala is made with 108 beryl 8 mm round stone beads, including morganite (the pink to orange form of beryl) and aquamarine (a blue to blue-green form of beryl). The guru bead is a large 20 mm faceted round crackle agate bead in a dark pink shade. The entire mala is hand knotted on white nylon cord and contains no marker beads.
The handmade silk tassel is approximately 4 inches long and is made from a mix of pink, white, turquoise, and light green silk thread.
The mala is approximately 19.75 inches long from the top of the loop to the guru bead and 24.25 inches from the top of the loop to the bottom of the tassel when fully stretched out.
Beryl is a naturally occurring mineral that is colorless in its pure form, but it’s most often found tinted by impurities which can cause it to appear green, blue, yellow, red (very rare), and white. Aquamarine, morganite, and emerald are better known forms of beryl.
