This pretty Turquoise mala is for children until the age of 5 years and suits both boys and girls. Your Children are deeply connected to the natural world. Gemstones and crystals are a key element of the natural world and play an important role in physical, emotional, and spiritual healing. Children have a profound and innate connection to the healing attributes and energies of stones and crystals so much so that they naturally gravitate towards these at a very young age. We like to encourage you to explore the healing powers of these natural elements. Turquoise is the symbol of youth, both the colour and the gemstone itself; the colour turquoise has a soothing effect and is the colour of communication; this mala may help children that are shy. The energy of gemstone Turquoise has long been used in amulets to provide protection, emotional, health and self-confidence. We recommend Turquoise for your child because we feel it can offer gentle emotional protection and more confidence to express them self. Your child can wear this mala on her or his body; but you can also place it somewhere near to where they spend a lot of time, like near to where they sleep.
