The joyful colors in this mala are like the first flash of autumn brilliance; complimented by gorgeous golden pearls, and completed with a terracotta Buddha pendant. Carnelian is a captivating stone; its bold energy brings a rush of warmth and joy that lingers, stimulating and empowering. Known as a stone of motivation and endurance, leadership and courage, Carnelians have protected and inspired throughout history. Carnelian is traditionally worn to enhance passion, love, and desire. The ancient Egyptians called Carnelian “the setting sun”; in its orange hues, they identified it with the receptive energies. Pearls have long been attributed with having great powers, and have been incorporated into the mythology of virtually every culture that has encountered them. And no wonder! Given natural pearls’ rarity, as well as their mysterious beauty, who could argue that pearls might not indeed be a gift from the gods? The Buddha image blesses you with a contemplative and peaceful mind.
