Gemini Mala Necklace
This mala of contradiction includes the two sacred beads of rudraksha and rudrani, bringing awareness to all the different parts of us, the darkness and the light, the feminine and the masculine, the shiva and the shakti. Without one the other cannot exist. The lava accents provide the spark that ignites this awareness and the courage to examine it all. Lava is a very grounding stone, coming from deep within the earth, the oldest and most frequently found stone in world.
These unique handcrafted jewelry pieces are lovingly made in Bali. Each bead has been hand picked, blessed, and chosen for its "energy" level. Bali Malas uses rudraksha beads of uncommon sizes, more commonly found rudrakshas are much larger. The smaller the rudraksha, the more rare and the more potent its energy is. A rudraksha is believed to impart different types of benefits according to the number of segments (similar to that of an orange) or mukhi. We use only rudrakshas of five mukhi. It is traditionally believed that they can destroy negative thought and grant the wearer peace of mind, clarity, and purpose.
Rudrakshas can have a very long life, known to last up to eight generations. They are considered sacred and need to be treated with respect and care. Wash them occasionally to remove dirt and dust. Oil them with coconut or sandalwood oil to preserve them. They will naturally turn darker with your own body oil.. this is the desired effect as they will grow stronger. Keep in a place of sanctity. Remove when you sleep. Our beads are authentic, sustainably harvested, fairly traded and ethically produced.
