About this Mala:
8mm Jade (dark) Mala beads, made of deep dark green *Jade beads, with Tiger’s Eye and silver markers, finished with an adjustable knot and Jade adornments. The shades of green and material vary from lot to lot.
There are two varieties of Jade: Jadeite, a sodium aluminum silicate; and Nephrite, a calcium magnesium iron silicate. Green is the color most associated with Jade, but Jadeite comes in a variety of colors including red, orange, yellow, green, blue, lilac, pink, black, white, and brown; and Nephrite ranges in color from mid to dark green or grey-green, white, yellowish or reddish. Jade can be found in Japan, Myanmar (formerly Burma), Guatemala, and in California and Alaska within the United States. These genuine jade malas cost hundreds, so we offer other dark green “jades.” Depending on supply offer BC, Dark Aventurine Jade, Dark Serpentine or *Malaysian Jade, 8mm.
Jade: Considered the most precious of all stones in ancient Egypt and even now in Japan and the Orient. It is credited with five qualities: clarity, courage, justice, wisdom, and modesty. It is folklored to evoke tranquility, so much so that even holding Jade in your hand may cause a feeling of serenity or wisdom. Consequently, it also said to help to the smooth transition to the next world and aids in peaceful death and dream yoga. Jade provides protection from from enemies and during long journeys.
Tiger’s Eye: Folklored as a power stone. Tiger’s Eye has a wonderful reputation for attracting wealth, money, and luck. However, it has powerful spiritual uses as well. The liquid movement of light across the stone makes it an excellent tool for vision or divination work.
All malas have a 30 day guarantee to protect from breakage. Complimentary Brocade Mala Bag included!

This mala is as beautiful as the picture! This is great for furthering your practice or simply for daily attire. The adjustable knot allows the beads to hang loosely or tight, whichever you prefer. I would definitely order from buddhistmala.com again

I love this Mala. I initially purchased this Mala in 2015; however the string broke after I returned from a trip to Jamaica in January and I was not able to recover all of the beads to have it restrung. I promptly ordered another one. Not only is this piece beautiful, the energy I feel when doing my Tara Chants is amazing.

Nice color. Well done. Would like to see a stronger fiber/metal used as I wear daily.

I love this mala and the colour but have a few issues with it. It arrived extremely tightly strung so it does not bend or wear very nicely. It also has wear marks at the top and bottoms of each bead where it is grinding on the next bead, likely due to how tight it is. So it is not very comfortable to wear as it pinches the next and does not lay very well. I love the colour of this one, but the wear marks where the beads are touching each other is grinding and chipping the colour off. :( So while I love this mala, this particular one I was sent is not so great.

This is our #2 bestseller. You can open and close knot. Please see our how-to video:
These beads are not grinding, the holes “dust” are from when they were newly made, and when you can loosen and tighten it will be just fine. :)
If you can’t figure out how to open and loosen your new mala or it’s too taught, we are happy to take it right back for a refund, just let us know and thanks!

While I do really love this mala the color of the “dark” jade, seems lighter than I expected. Still beautiful and well crafted though.

Beautiful mala with great quality.
The Jade is so beautiful I was worried it wouldn’t look as dark as the photos but it is such a rich color. Just looking at it has a calming effect.

I am extremely happy with my mala. The color is beautiful and rich, once i loosened the adjustable knot it wears very comfortable. The only question I have is the authenticity of the jade. Is this actual deep jade or jadite?
