The mala, trengwa, in Tibetan is the buddhist's rosary, the object from which the monk (or even the lay practitioner) almost never separates, holding it in his hand or wrapped around the wrist.
The mala is first of all a utilitarian onjet: it serves as a tactile support for the recitation of mantras, at the same time as it is used to count them if one has set to repeat a defined number.
The mala is composed of 108 strung pearls, which justifies its name, since it simply means "garland" (of pearls). The different components each contain a symbolic meaning specify: The large pearl (or Buddha's head) that closes the loop represents the knowledge of emptiness. The small cone that surmounts it is the mark of emptiness itself.

Burmese amber, also called burmite, is the fossil resin extracted from the Hukawng Valley deposit in northern Burma, a large Mesozoic-Cenozoic sedimentary basin located on the Burma Terrane, which was part of Gondwana (an ancient supercontinent that began to fracture about 160 million years ago).
This amber dates back about 99 million years, from the Cenomanian (Upper Cretaceous). Known and exploited for making jewelry since the first century AD.
Burmese amber is secreted by conifers, probably with a tree, the araucaria.
However, it could also have been produced by pine trees.
Amber itself is mostly disc-shaped and flattened, usually reddish-brown, with shades of color that range from yellow to red. The opacity of amber is variable.
