Tibetan Bodhi Bead Bracelet with Labradorite
Bodhi Tree beads with a 12mm Black Tourmaline center stone on a hand-knotted adjustable cord bracelet.
These Tibetan antique prayer beads that were collected by myself 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 stone is known as the gemstone of magic, it is believed to awaken in oneself the awareness of the innate magic that exists within us. This magical quality can increase a capacity to visualize and perceive through connection with the inner eye. Acknowledged as an inter-dimensional stone, in the light Labradorite emanates vivid flashes of colors which remind us of unseen planes of awareness that can be discovered when we move into a spiritual light.
Found in Madagascar, India, and Russia.
