Tibetan Prayer Beads with Aquamarine
Bodhi Tree beads with a 12mm aquamarine crystal 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.
The pristine blue of this stone is a breath of fresh air for clearing the mind and creating a sense of serenity by balancing emotions. Historically in lore this stone was thought to be the treasure of mermaids and was believed to be a talisman bringing luck and fearlessness to the carrier. Aquamarine activates the throat chakra and helps to create clear communication by connecting with one's highest personal truth. The cleansing energy of Aquamarine can provide courage and guidance when moving through a transition in one's life by removing resistance created by fear of the unknown.
Found in Brazil, Afghanistan and Pakistan.
