Most Mala designs consist of a large bead at the end called the "Guru" or "Bindu" bead. This bead confirms the end of one round in the prayer cycle. On a traditional Mala the Guru bead is the 109th bead. The Guru bead is typically adorned with a tassel, which represents enlightenment. Whether or not you want to create a traditional or whimsical Mala style design, the Guru bead is the perfect piece to give you a seamless finished look. We suggest using 1mm C-lon to string these beads.

More about African Turquoise

African Turquoise beads are a perennial classic that can be incorporated into funky, casual designs or into elegant, more formal pieces.

African Turquoise is the trade name for a jasper that is mined in Africa. It has a coloration and matrix structure very similar to that of turquoise. The base color of these beautiful gemstone beads ranges from light aqua to deep turquoise and is intermixed with a matrix of rich chocolate brown. These African turquoise beads possess a rich, smooth luster when polished.

Metaphysically, African Turquoise is called a ‘Stone of Evolution’ because it encourages growth, development and positive change. It is associated with the third eye chakra.
