This mala is made with 8 mm matte black onyx stone beads, red jasper guru and tower beads, and 8 mm round red jasper beads with white bone roundels serving as marker beads. The mala is made in the Zen style with the 108 beads separated into sections of 7, 14, 66, 14, and 7 with the marker beads. The entire rosary is hand knotted on black nylon cord.
The 4 inch long tassel is nylon in black with white highlights.
The mala is approximately 21.5 inches long from the top of the loop to the guru bead and 26 inches from the top of the loop to the bottom of the tassel when fully stretched out.
Black onyx is a natural stone with black coloring, and these particular beads have a matte finish. It is known for promoting protection, encouragement, and strength.
Red jasper is a naturally occurring stone that contains natural color variations from specimen to specimen, but it is generally a deep reddish rust color with occasional fine black and cream colored striations. Red jasper is claimed to promote nurturing, grounding, and stabilizing.
Although I have done my best to photograph the color of this item accurately, please allow for variations in monitor settings and for the fact that the photo is taken under high powered lights.
