This mala was handmade in Nepal. There are 108 beads on this mala and each bead is 8 mm wide. This mala is 31 inches long. There is a large turquoise spacer bead at three points on this mala, surrounded by two smaller coral beads. Spacer beads help you keep track of where you are on the mala while reiciting mantras. The guru bead is made from wood, and the guru bead lets you know when you have reached the end of the mala.

I kept seeing this page and mala in our web history, so I figured my wife liked it. Well, turns out she loved it and it fits her perfectly : )

This is a beautiful mala and I am so happy that I decided on this one! The only reason I gave it 3 stars is because I wish it was on elastic cord so I could wear it on my wrist (it needs just a bit more room to wrap it around my wrist comfortably.) In time, I may decide to restring it on elastic, but for now I am wearing it around my neck. This is a beautiful Mala, though!
