24 naturally scented 9mm Sandalwood beads come together at the three-holed "guru" bead, where the tassel attaches.  Tassel colors may vary.  These strands of 9mm beads are about 7 inches long and strung on a stretch elastic.  Holes are generally large enough to accommodate medium leather cords as well as thinner cable wires or Super-Lon.

Mala, meaning prayer strand, comes from the Sanskrit for "garland."  Made and used throughout India, Nepal and Tibet, malas are most often used for counting Hindu or Buddhist prayers, but these attractive and affordable beads also make auspicious components for your original designs.  Try stringing them with other organic materials or complementary gemstones, brass, vermeil, copper, or silver beads.

Sandalwood, a name used for several fragrant woods, comes from the Sanskrit.  This wood has been valued for thousands of years for its scent, as a material for carving, and its healing qualities.  In Ayurveda (an ancient Indian healing tradition) sandalwood is used to treat anxiety, while in alternative medicine it is reputed to bring one closer to the divine.  Buddhists believe that Sandalwood’s aroma will transform one’s desires and help maintain alertness while in meditation.  In India and Nepal the government owns the Santalum album trees (Indian Sandalwood) and strictly controls the harvesting of them for oil and wood.
