Tibetan Bodhi Bead Bracelet with Moonstone
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.
A stone of initiating beginnings, much like its namesake, moonstone recalls in our mind the cyclical nature of life reminding us to go with the natural flow. This helps to keep us from overreacting to situations by remembering to view the bigger picture. Resonating with the mysterious and feminine energies moonstone has been traditionally used to enhance psychic abilities by promoting empathy and intuition.
Found in India, Sri Lanka and Australia.
