Rudraksha, Blue Turquoise, Camel Jasper and Carnelian Mala Prayer Bracelet

Cool blue chalk turquoise stones really pop against the rudraksha and camel jasper beads. This BOHO trendy mala bracelet is alive with colors and texture. To begin I selected a guru center bead carved from carnelian. On each side I spaced rudraksha beads with their beautifully warm reddish brown shades. They also add a lot of texture and interest to the bracelet. Beige came jasper beads are added in-between the rudraksha beads. For a pop of bright color, I selected blue chalk turquoise beads. Chalk turquoise is a form of natural turquoise that has a white chalk-like consistency. It has the same chemical composition as turquoise, only without the copper. It is actually copper minerals that give turquoise it's beautiful blue color. The chalk turquoise is stabilized and color enhanced to be used in jewelry. To finish off the mala bracelet I selected a silk copper colored tassel. The bracelet has been double strung using gold colored stretch cord. Since stretch cord is used, this bracelet is a one-size fits all. 

Rudraksha: is a divine seed worn by mankind for good health, religious attainment through Japa (Power) and Shakti and for fearless life. It is said that rudraksha seeds, combined with other stones create different power combinations. 

Carnelian: are stones of action, that will give you the courage and confidence to move forward on a new path in life. Like most orange stones, Carnelian is a stone of the sacral chakra.

Camel jasper: is believed to be the stone of choice when it comes to connecting with past times and the energies of nature, so it is used both in work connected with past lives and contacting nature spirits. It is thought to harmonize energies both inside the wearers body and between the wearer and his surroundings. It is used to improve the skill of visualization.
Turquoise (chalk): is connected with the fifth chakra. It is held to be a stone of straight, honest communication.
