The copper wire of this mala gives this piece a different look from the usual silver; copper wire, combined with the cobalt blue of the Lapis Lazuli and the blue-green hue of the Turquoise give this mala a striking look. A stone of truth, Lapis Lazuli encourages honesty of your spirit, and in the spoken and written word. Wear it for all forms of deep communication. It is also a stone of friendship and brings harmony in relationships. A Lapis Lazuli grid brings calm and loving communication and is a powerful crystal for activating the higher mind and enhancing intellectual ability. Turquoise is one of the oldest stone in man’s history, the talisman of kings, shamans, and warriors. It is a stone of protection, strong and opaque, yet soothing to the touch, healing to the eye, as if carved from an azure heaven and slipped to earth. Copper wire acts as an energy transmitter enhancing the properties of the stones.
