These elegant 108-bead malas are made of Garnet, Golden Rutile and pewter-toned spacer beads. Attached to the lovely burgundy tassel is an Om charm (5mm beads). SYMBOL: Garnet is a stone of love and passion. It gives courage and confidence, boosts energy, and guards against depression and melancholy. It brings constancy to friendships and success in business. The OM symbol represents the sound of life. The chanting of Om revitalizes the body, soothes the mind and nourishes the soul. Hence, Om is considered the most powerful of all mantras.
