Mars Mala - Rudraksha Beads with Red Coral Counter Beads

This Mars mala has rudraksha beads that are hand knotted with red coral counter beads and gold filled accents. The Guru bead drop is a larger red coral tube bead and there is a dark red tassel.

This is the standard 108 bead mala composed of 9 sets of 11 beads and then the counter bead. Malas are used to count prayers, japa - repetition of Holy names and mantras, and to keep track of breathing exercises in meditation.

The mala is 36" long with a hanging Guru bead and a 2" red tassel. It weighs about 4 ounces.

Red coral is the primary gemstone to strengthen the planetary influence of Mars.

Rudraksha beads have a long history of use for sacred malas in several religions. Rudraksha is a Sanskrit word associated with one of Shiva's names, Rudra.
