This regal 6mm Lapis Lazuli Mala was meticulously hand knotted on January 1, 2018, with joy and excitement for a brand new year. Lapis Lazuli is a stone of truth and wisdom, and benefits both the brow and throat chakras. Lapis is a wonderful talisman for performers and orators of any kind. A stone of Egyptian royalty, Lapis also inspires our higher mind to manifest the bounty of the truth of our own authentic paths and go fourth in celebration of living our life’s true purpose. There are 5 special tear shaped Hematite station and guru beads. Hematite is protective and grounding. A stone of the Root Chakra, it soothes in times of stress or worry. It is perfect as a station stop while reciting mantras or affirmations. This Mala is finished with a delightful double-sided Lord Buddha pendant.
