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 Green Aventurine

These Green Aventurine gemstone beads are a smooth aloe green color, and they flatter almost every skin tone. The most common color of aventurine is green, but the stone can also be found in shades of red, orange, brown, yellow, blue, and gray.

Aventurine is a form of quartz, characterized by its translucency and the presence of platy mineral inclusions that give a shimmering or glistening effect. This shimmering effect is called “aventurescence”. Chrome-bearing fuchsite (a variety of muscovite mica) is the classic inclusion, and gives a silvery green or blue sheen.

Green Aventurine is thought to increase luck and prosperity. Many wear this stone to better their chances, at the casino or on a date. Green aventurine is specifically associated with clear-eyed vision in overcoming negative obstacles.
