About this Mala:
108 8mm Zen Buddhist Verawood (Heartwood) beads, with Aventurine markers, finished with a crocheted tassel. Imported from Kyoto, Japan.
Verawood is a very dense, almost marble-like, fragrant hardwood. It has a very distinct grain and a natural olive color with hints of deep blue and green throughout. Verawood color can range from a pale yellowish olive to a deeper forest green or dark brown to almost black. The color tends to darken with age, especially upon exposure to light. Verawood is a medium-sized tree found in Central and South America.
Verawood: Evokes a meditative state with its distinct, perfume-like fragrance that lingers.
Aventurine: Aids with circulation, blood disorders, and thyroid issues, and can help clear congestion and allergies. Legend says it is an all-purpose healer, used to reduce stress, develop confidence, enhance imagination, and improve prosperity. A legend from ancient Tibet says that Aventurine was used to improve nearsightedness and to increase the wearer’s creativity. Many believe that Aventurine has the capacity to calm a troubled spirit and bring about inner peace.
