Tibetan Prayer Beads with Congo Malachite Bracelet
Bodhi Tree beads with 12mm Congo malachite center stone on an adjustable leather cord.
Tibetan antique prayer beads that I collected on the Tibetan Plateau. They are seeds from the Bodhi Tree which is the tree that the Buddha sat under when he achieved enlightenment. They have a wonderful patina from being worn for many years and so do not wash to preserve the oils.
This vibrant green stone connects us deeply to the spiritual side of nature making this stone a provider of balance and abundance. The verdant, lush color of Malachite's creates an atmosphere of transformation much like winter coming into spring. Like the change of seasons, malachite aids creative and spiritual projects to blossom.
Found in Congo, Zambia and Arizona.
