As a gemologist graduated from the National Institute of Gemmology of Paris, all our stones are appraised and certified.

As a Malakara, we make all our malas ourselves while scrupulously respecting tradition.

Sliding knot in finish like all our malas, object of practice, as shown in this video as an example.

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. The cord on which the beads are strung must, theoretically, be a braid of several threads:
three sons symbolize the "three Bodies" of a Buddha (Absolute Body, Body of Glory and Body of Emanation);
five sons symbolize the "five wisdoms" or "five families" of Buddhas (Buddha family, vajra family, jewel family, lotus family, activity family)
nine sons symbolize the primordial Buddha Vajradhara and the eight great bodhisattvas.

Heavenly guardian, tasked with preventing the intrusion of demons and evil spirits, Pixiu (or Pi Yao) fiercely protects his master. considered one of the nine sons of the dragon, it is often used as a protective amulet. The pi xiu is of noble extraction, it feeds on precious stones and metal that give it a certain nobility of character. The animal is short on legs and a little belly. It is that, for having relieved himself in the gardens of the Jade Emperor, he was punished by the latter who with a misplaced kick sealed his anus. And since then has been tinkling in the belly of the wonderful monster all the gold, all the silver and all the jewels that he swallows with good appetite. He acquired in the eyes of men a new virtue: that of attracting good fortune. It is very frequently seen protecting houses, temples and any significant decline.

Along with the Kirin and the lion, Pixiu is part of the trilogy of great protective animals.
This mala is composed of 108 tiger eye pearls, obsidian celeste eye, Burmese red amber. Counter, bell and vajra in silver 999/1000th.
