Exceptionally beautiful Mother of Pearl Japa Mala beads from Nepal. A 108 bead strand of M.O.P. beads finished with a traditional cotton tassel. Each bead is individually etched with the mantra “Om Mani Padme Hum” a prayer for compassion for all living beings. These wonderful malas can be worn around the neck, or wrapped around the wrist three times and worn as a bracelet. They have a deliciously weighty, almost metallic feel. Each mala strand comes in it’s own silk drawstring pouch. A true treasure!
