I created this full 108 bead mala necklace with the image of the ocean in mind - beginning with ivory mother of pearl, then AAA grade aquamarine, to AAA grade flashy rainbow labradorite and then coming full circle with black essential oil diffusing lava rock - I have included sterling silver halfway markers at the 54 bead mark and a sterling silver bali bead at the end to top the stunning agate pendant, with natural banding that looks like sea foam. This is truly an indulgent piece. I hand tie a knot in between each gemstone in the traditional japa mala custom which adds luxury and durability to the piece.
