A superb mala crafted from Indian conch or chank shell. Malas made from conch are often associated with the practice of Chenrezig. Due to the nature of conch and the fact that each bead is hand made, there will be very slight differences to each bead. The black fissures and pitting are natural inclusions in the shell and should not be considered to be a defect. Please do not expect perfectly calibrated beads because these are not machine made. Many beads have also been filled with tiny pieces of coral and turquoise. A powerful mala!
Natural hand cut and hand polished conch shell beads with inlay.
