This Mountain (or Mashan) Jade long mala has a total of 108 beads including the lovely faceted Czech glass marker beads. The Mountain Jade beads are a solid orange/red colour. The turquoise coloured Czech glass beads have small copper plated brass discs on either side of them. The marker beads are placed every 27th bead. The Czech glass head bead and copper-plated discs are not counted in the 108 beads. The mala is finished with a coordinating 100% cotton tassel.
This mala is strung on flexible wire and finished with either an aqua or coral tassel made from 100% cotton, you choose the tassel shade below. Mountain Jade in Nepal and India is often sold as Mountain coral. .
Czech glass beads are from either the Czech Republic or Slovakia and are extremely high quality. We especially use them with semi-precious beads as their crystal quality and finish is quite lovely. Czechoslovakia was renowned worldwide for its glass bead production and this production continues in both Slovakia and the Czech Republic.
The Jade beads are 6mm in size and the mala measures over the 108 beads approximately 65cm (26 inches). Laid flat and measured from top to toe, with the tassel and head beads, it is around 37cm (15.5”).
