A delightful mala crafted from small natural Indian seeds known as Raktu. They closely resemble Nepalese Bodhiseed in appearance and are a much more affordable alternative. It is interesting to note that Nepalese Bodhiseed beads in this size, currently have a selling price of more than $1000 per mala in Nepal. Such high prices are being driven by strong demand in China.
These Raktu bead malas have been polished smooth and are perfectly matched in size. As with all seed malas the beads will turn darker with age and regular use.
108 Raktu Seeds plus Nepalese Bodhiseed Guru Bead
Bead size: 8mm (approx)
Strung on strong braided cord.
Hand crafted in Nepal.
N.B The natural colour of the seeds can vary slightly between malas. Some beads may be slightly darker in colour and others lighter for example. This is normal. Please also expect natural pitting in the seeds. The colour of the mala cord may also vary between malas depending on what we have received from our supplier.
