Our Aparna Jade Mala Necklace is made of genuine jade beads that are lightly interspersed with holy rudraksha beads...simply divine. Jade is a very protective stone and is known for absorbing energy.
Gemstone malas have been used for centuries in yoga, meditation, prayer, and intention setting. Each of our malas creates a grounded mind, body, and spirit and has been carefully handcrafted with love and intention. Each bead in this jade mala has been single-knotted to maximize durability, making this Aparna jade mala necklace ideal for counting.
Following fair trade principles, all of our malas are hand-strung by women artisans in marginalized communities with fair wages and fair trade practices. Our genuine gemstone beads have been certified and verified by the GIA (Gemological Institute of America) as genuine gemstones in Carlsbad, California.

Like all of our malas, this makes a wonderful fashion statement but are also functional to do japa with added gemstone benefits. Be sure to visit our Malas collection for more gemstone malas.
Malas are a tool and an aid to help deepen meditation, mindful and spiritual practices through the repetition of sacred sounds. Each mala comes strung with 108 beads plus the guru bead located where the tassel is. You will repeat your mantra, affirmation or sacred sound while rotating the mala through your fingers one bead at a time. 108 is a particularly auspicious number and 108 repetitions of your sacred sound or affirmation will bring your mind and body peaceful and calming effects.
