This red yak bone Tibetan mala consists of 108 bone rondelle beads, each bead inlaid with either brass colored bands or with small chips of red copal and sky blue turquoise. Each bead is approximately 8-9mm in diameter and 6-8mm high with a large 2-3mm hole. Temporarily strung on cotton cord with a decorative two part guru bead. It is finished with a shiny lacquer fixative.
There are 108 beads on the cord and the mala is about 30 inches long. Use as is (it does fit over your head, as strung) or take apart for a generous supply of these wonderful inlaid yak bone beads for all your jewelry projects.
Please note that there is some size variation in the height of the beads.
Made by hand with blessings in Kathmandu, Nepal. Fairly traded.
