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 Tiger Eye

No other stone evokes a big cat peering through the trees quite like Tiger Eye. Also known as Tiger’s Eye stone, our Tiger Eye gemstone beads display lustrous, chatoyant stripes of brown and golden yellow. These beautiful stripes shimmer and change in different lighting conditions. This gives tiger eye beads such beautiful vibrancy and movement!

Tiger Eye is especially common in South Africa, but can be found in various locations around the world. Tiger Eye is a fibrous variety of chalcedony that exhibits a property called chatoyancy, which is an optical effect that produces vertical, shimmering bands. Tiger Eye is a type of quartz, made up of silica. The chatoyancy of the stone is caused by altered amphibole (an inosilicate) fibers that have over time become limonite.

Tiger Eye is thought to benefit many chakras. This stone is often worn to foster courageous, yet grounded decision making and clarity.
