Also known as power bracelets or mala bracelets, this sacred jewellery is a tool for being mindful. It can be used to count repetitions of a mantra, a yoga pose or to set an amount of time for meditation. This form of counting allows one to focus rather than counting repetitions. These bracelets will especially appeal to those looking for a classic 18 bead mala with the specific healing properties of amethyst.
Amethyst is the purple variety of quartz crystal composed of silicon dioxide with traces of iron. In ancient times amethyst was thought to reduce the effects of too much alcohol because of its similarity in color to red wine. It is thought to dispel negativity and create a peaceful environment.
There are many types of mantras and styles of counting. Research is recommended to find the style that works for each individual.
