Wrist malas have been worn for centuries as beautiful jewelry and as a reminder of mindful living. This is our modern take on the mala bead bracelet - combining style and spirituality. A double-strand bracelet comprised of rare, spotted Vietnam Nha Trang Agarwood (7mm x 56 beads) and brilliant Zircon gemstones (6mm x 2 beads) shining with blue-hued fire.
Agarwood (also called Aloeswood or Oud) is a spiritual wood used extensively in Buddhist ceremonies and meditation. Agarwood is naturally formed within the forests of Southeast Asia when the Agar tree develops resins as a natural defence against infection. Over an extensive period of time (up to 100 years), the resin saturates the wood, resulting in a rare, dark, beautiful heartwood.
Agarwood is also known as a spiritual and healing wood. Many believe Agarwood contains the positive life energy (Qi) of growth, expansion, new beginnings, nourishment and health. Agarwood bracelets and necklaces are carried or worn to manifest positive energy and good fortune.
