White Howlite long mala (6mm beads)


White howlite long mala, with 6mm beads and a choice of howlite marker/counter beads

SKU: HOWWHITE10806 Categories: ,

This white howlite mala has a total of 108 6mm beads including the larger Howlite marker/counting beads.  Simple Tibetan ‘silver’ discs are used to highlight the colours nicely.

Marker beads are available in aqua, white or green with a choice of tassel colours.

The head bead and discs are not counted in the 108 beads. The marker beads are placed every 27th bead.   The mala is strung on strong thread and finished with a coordinating tassel made from 100% cotton thread.

Howlite is usually white in colour with grey/black veined markings.  It is a very porous mineral. This porosity enables it to be penetrated by dyes and stained a variety of colours, such as the bright Aqua colour used in the marker beads.

Tibetan 'silver' is very like pewter, it is an alloy of copper, iron and zinc with a silvered finish, sometimes but not always with a small percentage of pure silver.  The Tibetan beads we use are LEAD FREE and NICKEL FREE

The beads are 6mm in size and the mala measures over the 108 beads approximately 62cm (24.5 inches). Laid flat and measured from top to toe, with the tassel and head beads, it is around 36cm (14.25 inches).
