About this Mala:

Onyx & Obsidian Mala, made of 8mm, perfectly smooth black onyx beads, with snowflake obsidian and silver markers, finished with a snakeknot.

About Black Onyx:

Gemologically, natural Onyx is similar to other cryptocrystalline quartz and is much harder than some varieties sold as Onyx, which are much softer and are made of calcite. Onyx may be a multilayered black and white stone, usually with a black base and a white upper layer. Onyx is mined in the US, Italy and Mexico.

Healing Properties:

Black Onyx: Helps one to change bad habits and is a powerful healing and grounding stone. Black stone in the Feng Shui tradition is considered “Yin” and is folklore says it helps with emotional protection and increased power. It is associated with the root chakra.

Snowflake Obsidian: Clears negative thoughts and inspires new, self-improving ideas to help one’s situation in a positive direction. It can also improve psychic links to lost ones and previous lives.


All malas have a 30 day guarantee to protect from breakage. Complimentary Silky Mala Bag included!

    I bought this about 18 months ago, it feels beautiful to touch, I have used it for several mediation retreats. It is well made and it has held up to hours of use during mediation. I can tell that this mala is made with love and attention to detail.

    I have purchased from this website before and I love my mala so much I decided to purchase one as a gift for someone very close to me. The mala arrived and looks just as beautiful as it does in the picture. Unlike some malas I’ve had in the past, these are built to last. I wear mine every day and it looks as good as the day I received it. I will continue to give my business to buddhistmala.com

    I bought this as a gift. It arrived in beautiful condition and the bag to hold it is very well made. It looks just like the picture.My husband loves it and wears it everyday!

    Excellent Quality, not for everyday wear as it is heavy (a good thing). It hangs low as the beads, 8mm are large and 102 around is a long ways!

    Extremely satisfied with this product. I had been searching for some quality mala beads for a while. I came across this website and was immediately drawn to the number of different options available. Different stones, gems, and crystals all given a specific description and healing property. I purchased this one and the jade/turquoise one. I wear one of them everyday. Great quality product. It hangs nicely on the neck and comes with its own embroidered pouch. I would recommend to anyone searching for a great value. Will be purchasing more.

    This is my 5th mala from Buddhist Mala and every single one that I have purchased has been excellent. The quality of the beads are well above their price point and carry a powerful energetic charge. I have only purchased my malas from BM and I will continue to do so forever more!

    A lovely creation. Goes perfectly with black clothing.

    Generous weight and workmanship using quality stone beads. It’s really gorgeous and I’d buy it again.

      Thank you DS! We are careful to chose natural gemstones and make them, here in the USA- just right!
