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 Poppy Jasper

Poppy Jasper gemstone beads are a dramatic red, just like their namesake flower. These beads would be perfect for a summertime design!

Poppy Jasper is a trade name for a dramatic red coloration of orbicular jasper. Orbicular jaspers have orb-like inclusions of quartz or feldspar. Poppy jaspers are mined in California. Jasper is a combination of chalcedony and quartz, and has been used in jewelry and decorative arts for thousands of years. It was often the stone of choice among Ancient Minoan, Egyptian, and Sasanian (Persian) Empires. The name Jasper comes from old French, jaspre, meaning “speckled stone”.

Jasper is said to facilitate nurturing behaviors and benefit healing.
