Malas, also known as Buddhist Prayer Beads, are a traditional tool used for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra. They have been used for thousands of years by many different cultures and religions. They contain 108 beads to signify the 108 stages of the human soul. Wear your Mala either as a necklace or as a bracelet wrapped around your wrist.
Agate is a stone of strength. It was used by ancient civilizations on the breastplates of armor to give warriors strength in battle. Agate also enhances creativity and strengthens the intellect, making it a good stone for students and artists. It is also known as a luck stone. As a stone of harmony, one of the things agate does is balance yin and yang energy. Agate also is known for increasing energy. However, because it is a grounding stone, it does not increase energy at all times, but rather enables bursts of energy as needed. In this way, agate is a conservation stone, and enhances longevity.
