The Stones / Beads

Malas.Cover.page.GordonBelow are the metaphysical properties for many of the semi-precious stones I use in making my PrayerMalas. I also use various woods, seeds, shell and riverstone (natural and dyed).

To some, these qualities are important so your order will include a card with the metaphysical properties of the stone you choose. The Guru beads, as well as the counter beads, are Wood, Soapstone or the same stone that is in the rest of the PrayerMala. I choose what enhances the natural beauty of the stones.

Please note that all metaphysical or healing properties listed below are collected from various sources. This information is offered as a service and not meant to treat medical conditions.
