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 Blue Goldstone

Legends state that Goldstone was first created by accident in 17th century Venice. A Venetian monk accidentally spilled copper shavings into the molten glass he was producing. He tossed out this mistake, only to return later to a beautiful, shimmering glass product we know and love today. The truth is that Goldstone is at least several hundred years older than the Venetian variety. However, Goldstone certainly spiked in popularity during the Renaissance. Goldstone is also known as Monkstone, Stellaria, and Aventurine glass. Looking at Blue Goldstone is almost a magical experience - the midnight blue color and metallic sparkle remind us of a vivid night sky.

Blue Goldstone is actually glass created at very high temperatures and mixed with copper or other metallic materials, such as chromium oxide, cobalt, or manganese.

Metaphysically, goldstone is said to assist in ambition and is often associated with empaths.
