Milky Snow Quartz Mala Prayer Bead
The Mala is a rosary containing 108 beads. It is used for keeping count while reciting, chanting, or mentally repeating a mantra or name/s of a particular deity, a practice known in Sanskrit as japa.
Hindu tradition holds that the correct way to use a mala is with the right hand, with the thumb flicking one bead to the next, and with the mala draped over the middle finger. The index finger represents ego, the greatest impediment to Self-Realization, so it is considered best avoided (as with the ego) when chanting on a mala.
Snow Quartz is also known as Milky Quartz. It is a gentle calming stone, which is said to enhance meditation by allowing you to link to deep inner wisdom. It is also said to provide support while you are learning lessons and to help you to let go of overwhelming responsibilities and limitations.
Snow Quartz has the same healing properties as clear quartz but with a gentler effect. Snow Quartz is believed to help promote mental clarity.
