Faceted Prehnite Mala (Grade A) 8mm with a black onyx guru bead and adjustable tension knot - handmade in northern California exclusively for Tibetan Treasures. Prehnite is a protective stone and is also known as a stone of prophesy. It aids spiritual communication used in conjunction with the practice of meditation and visualization.
Gemstone faceting is a relatively recent innovation. Today most transparent gemstones are faceted - fashioned with a series of flat planes known as facets. A well-crafted geometrical arrangement will reflect light both internally and externally, maximizing the brilliance and fire of the stone.
