Faceted Sapphire Pocket Mala (Grade A/B) with Black Onyx Guru Bead and Adjustable Tension Knot, 6mm ~ handmade in northern California exclusively for Tibetan Treasures. 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.
Pocket malas are a convenient and discreet way to practice in public. The sizes will vary thus they are not guaranteed to fit on one's wrist.
