I love this mala so much. It is made with 108 matte Carnelian beads, hand knotted black colored silk, a handmade glass bead, and silk tassel. Carnelian brings courage, vitality, and confidence. Carnelian holds the element of fire and it works with the root, sexual/creative, and solar plexus chakras. This beautiful mala is 31" long with a 2" tassel.
