ABOUT THIS MALA:
Wrist Mala-Antique Bronze Buddha with Tiger Eye crafted with 8mm black matte Agate beads, with Tiger’s eye accent beads, a bronze Buddha bead, and bronze accents on stretchy cord. Imported.
Agate belongs to the Quartz family of minerals. Agate was first discovered sometime around the 3rd or 4th century B.C. by the Greek Philosopher Theophrastus, who named the stone after the river Achates, in which it was found. Although some colors occur more commonly than others, almost all agate will be multicolored due to unique banding.
Agate: Known as a stone of protection, protecting one from nightmares, stress and fatigue. Agate has the ability to quench thirst and protect from fevers.
Tiger’s Eye: The chosen material for His Holiness the Dalai Lama’s own mala. It is folklored as a power stone. Tiger’s Eye has a wonderful reputation for attracting wealth, money, and luck. However, it has powerful spiritual uses as well. The liquid movement of light across the stone makes it an excellent tool for vision or divination work.
