This mala is made with six sets of stones in rainbow colors (8 mm round beads in red jasper, red aventurine, yellow calcite, green aventurine, blue angelite, dumortierite, and amethyst) and 8 mm round sandalwood beads with faceted matte black onyx beads serving as marker beads. The guru bead is carved wooden Buddha bead (38×28 mm).
The mala is made in the Zen style with the 108 beads separated into sections of 7, 14, 66, 14, and 7 with the marker beads. The entire rosary is hand knotted on black nylon cord.
The handmade silk tassel is black and 3.5 inches long.
The mala is approximately 20.5 inches long from the top of the loop to the guru bead and 26 inches from the top of the loop to the bottom of the tassel when fully stretched out.
Sandalwood is naturally scented since it is the source for the popular sandalwood oil.
