About Amber:

Amber is an ancient petrified pine tree resin. It is worn as jewelry and burned as incense by Tibetans and Native Americans for both social and sacred use. Amber diskette coins were also traded as currency by the Vikings.

Healing Properties:

Amber: Helps lift the heaviness of one’s burdens, allowing happiness to infuse one’s being. Amber absorbs impurities of the body and spirit, and should be cleansed or purified after being used for healing to dispense negative energy it may have absorbed. The golden color is associated with the Buddha Ratnasambhava, who helps to remove poverty by reminding us of our inherent richness and wealth.

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

    This is my 6th Mala from Sakura/Buddhist Mala and one of my favorites. This is my 3rd 108 bead 8mm ambers, I’ve bought an 8mm Mammoth Ivory, an 8mm Tiger’s Eye and an 8mm Amber wrist Mala. I cord Malas with an 80lb C-Lon cord so my first two 8mm ambers we’re cut apart by me, separated and basically I made a perfect honey and a perfect cognac out of the two. You can find cheaper amber malas or beads out there BUT they sell AAA Baltic Amber that’s drilled properly and will accept a nice 1mm cording. I’ve had 8mm “Amber” beads fracture from trying to record them on my C-Lon but never a bead from a Sakura Mala. They use top notch beads! I’ve restrung everything I bought minus the wrist Mala but that’s just because I found a Mala cord I like that’s thin and very tough… plus I’ve been stringing them about 13 years. This newest addition I haven’t touched as it’s strung on a similar 1mm cord, has a lovely adjustable snake knot and it can go from taught and around my neck to opened up 1/2” and around my wrist in a heartbeat. I make a lot of malas but for my own I love awesome beads & Sakura has sent me 3 beautiful 8mm ambers & a Mammoth Tusk Ivory already. I’ve never had a bead or Guru bead break. My Ambers & Mammoth Ivory are my treasured Altar malas I usually leave home. Great Beads????????????????
